One morning, sixteen-year-old John McArdle’s father went to work and never came back. Struck down prematurely by a fatal heart attack, the forty-eight-year-old professional soldier left behind a wife and five children to grieve his death.
Now, more than five decades later, award-winning actor John McArdle writes a tender and moving letter to his father that provides an intimate portrait of the impact of his father’s death, how he tried to cope, and how he turned his wild adventures abroad into a successful acting career.
