Someone told me Jerre Lynn’s husband wrote a book. I grew up with Jerre Lynn Parker Geiger in Hughes Springs, Tx, the indisputable center of the Universe to those of us who lived there.
I had never met Roger Geiger but what the heck? I’ll read it. I might even put a review on Amazon. So I ordered a copy, and I read the first chapter and to my surprise I couldn’t put it down.
From the cover:
“Perverts, pipe bombs, death of those dear. Roger faces all of these and more. ‘It’s high adventure meets great tragedy.’ Follow Roger as he grows into wisdom, crashes on the rocks of despair, then wins his way back to recovery.
Roger takes you along for the ride from his childhood in Canada through his adventurous young adult years to finding love and suffering heartache and “facing the bear” many steps of the way. He shares the good and the bad, the funny and the sad, the tears and the laughter. He shares hilarious stories of youth, the joys of a growing family and the sorrow of personal tragedy.
The book is a memoir, an autobiography, a coming of age book that is full of love and adventure. It’s been a long time since I have read a book and laughed out loud and cried real tears but I did with “Face the Bear”. I also found myself stopping to tell my husband about some of Roger’s adventures, or maybe I should say “escapades”.
The book is well written, entertaining and leaves you wanting more. What’s next on the agenda Mr. Geiger?
