Daniel: Family of the Lost
by Peter Pactor

If you have ever belonged to a family, or wished you did, or wished you didn’t, you should read this book. Daniel: Family of the Lost is the story of people who were lost in the world in various ways, grew close, and became a family in actuality. How did this happen? Because a family is a compass that guides its members; sometimes well, sometimes poorly. At its best, the family supports and guides its members toward reaching their potential as individuals and as a family. At its worst, it abandons and even drives away its members; meet Kenneth, Jerry, and Chuck, who were homeless teenagers because of abuse and abandonment. This story complete with illustrative anecdotes, shows what people can accomplish and how. It is a story of potential.

"This book is a wonderful journey through such a challenging time in American history. Daniel’s insight navigating the Great Depression is impressive. It’s like I can see things through his eyes and those of his family and friends. The author once again makes me feel like I am living through the life of the young entrepreneur and interacting with significant historical figures, personally. It is such a joy." —Dr. Jeff Johnson, Distinguished Toastmaster "Peter Pactor has once again brought an era of life in the latest book of the Daniel series. Providing life lessons so useful, yet so palatable, you don’t realize they are lessons. As one of the characters says, you need to take the words and make them your own. In any of this collection, you will find that happening often. Eminently readable as a story about people living in difficult times, but still treating each other with dignity; a useful skill we should remember today." —Cantor Monica J. O’Desky "An affirming meditation on loss and finding one’s way to a family against all odds." —Warren Ehn
