A Happy Father's Day to Jennifer Grant's father, Dixon Shaw? Well, below is an excerpt from The River: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel. You make the call.
Jennifer’s relationship with her father was strained, at best, mainly due to the way he treated – or as Jennifer would point out, mistreated – her late mother. There also were vague questions about her father’s dealings as a casino operator for many years. Jennifer never pursued answers to those questions. As she told Stephen a couple of times, “I don’t think I want answers. I worry about what I might find. I already have little respect for the man. I’ve been content with some willful ignorance.”
