Dear Gabriel is a deeply moving and elegantly written confessional in the form of a letter from a father to his young son. With great love, pride, and a profound wonder, Freihow describes a complex, loving relationship with young Gabriel that is sometimes fraught with misunderstanding, but bolstered by unconditional love. His sensitive depiction of the haunting rural landscape in which the family lives serves as a powerful backdrop to the intimate prose of his letter and rich sense of childhood magic. Dear Gabriel reaches out to all parents in their struggle to understand and nurture their children, regardless of any obstacles that may stand in their way. It is a tender yet brutally honest testament to love and the parent-child relationship.
