You Can See More From Up Here
Mark Guerin has written this novel that could be used as a supplemental read for social workers and counselors, and maybe even nurses who want to help in anyway they can, even if it is the way Walker is doing it. This is a story of living with the decisions you make right or wrong and learning how to communicate your needs as well as the needs of others.
In 2004, when middle-aged Walker Maguire is called to the deathbed of his estranged father, his thoughts return to 1974. He’d worked that summer at the auto factory where his dad, an unhappily retired Air Force colonel, was employed as plant physician. Witness to a bloody fight falsely blamed on a Mexican immigrant, Walker kept quiet, fearing his white co-workers and tyrannical father. Lies snowball into betrayals, leading to a life-long rift between father and son that can only be mended by the past coming back to life and revealing its long-held secrets. You Can See More From Up Here is a coming-of-age tale about the illusion of privilege and the power of the past to inform and possibly heal the present.
