Everybody Calls My Father, Father
FIVE STARS This was an amazingly good read, and I'm not a fan of love stories. OK, I did read "The Bridges of Madison County" and it was good. However, this book was better, and told a story that is more important in many ways. Tim Anders is a magnificent No Limit Texas Holdem poker player, who has taken all my chips on more than one occasion, but as an author, he has made me a richer man.

FIVE STARS Everybody
Calls My Father, Father by Tim `Dr. Hope' Anders is based on the true story of his mother
and father. Bouvette Sherwood, a successful producer and actress of New York
Broadway, meets Hughie Hewitt, a Catholic priest. The two soon fall madly in
love. There is just one problem though, Hughie, due to him being a Catholic
priest, is unable to marry and start a family. Will Huighie and Bouvette be able
to work things out?
STARS Everybody Calls My Father, Father is a love story that presents its
readers with an inside look at the Catholic Church circa 1945. This saga is
based on the true account of author Tim Anders parents' perilous and clandestine
love affair. The primary impediment to their love was the fact that the author's
father was indeed a "Father" (that is to say a Catholic Priest named Hughie
Hewitt) who chose to remain in the church rather that leave and assume his
parental responsibilities after he had fathered two children.
FIVE STARS This is a great story that has it all; romance, intrigue, betrayal, sorrow and hope. The first page grabs and this book doesn't let go. I read it in a single sitting. The 1940's New York setting was so realistic, I felt like I good smell the garlic in the Italian restaurant where the book opens. What is truly incredible is the deeply personal nature of the story and the author's ability to share it with us. I definitely hope Anders writes and publishes the rest of his story in the coming years.
