Misused words also distract, such as “worrisome” instead of “worried.” In addition, the characterizations of women lack nuance, as they’re mostly portrayed as either angels or devils. Awkward prose undermines this story of troubled siblings...

Synopsis

A Life Worthwhile is a blended mystery fiction that portrays the challenges, conquests and heartache of the Gustafson Family in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
A Life Worthwhile is a story involving an ambitious and tightly knit family who face the daunting challenges of careers, marriage, infidelity, depression and a tragic death.
Gage Gustafson is the main character and the novel in part exhibits his struggles as a young adult. Gage’s life begins to spiral out of control after a break-up with his college girlfriend, but he is then forced to regain his sense of focus after being confronted by his family. He then excels in college and becomes a responsible young man and dependable son, brother and uncle. But a horrific death will test his very being, beyond what he ever imagined.
You will also meet Roy Gustafson, the older brother of Gage who is a successful entrepreneur and wonderful father of two young children. Roy battles with clinical depression and the endless un-satisfaction of his wife Kaylie.
