The Inkwell by Tim Brown is a story of an inkwell that has been in Jerry’s family since the American Revolution. Jerry has been the keeper of the inkwell during his generation. He and his wife, Mary, are writing their wills and he is struggling with which child will be the next person to take the responsibility. When he can’t make a decision he calls his fly fishing buddies to go fishing and think.
This is a wonderful, quick read story of the importance of family and family traditions. It also shows the strength people get through their friendships. I really enjoyed the way the men interacted with each other. One of the parts that stands out to me is how they react with catching a fish and how long they keep them on the line before getting them in their nets. Their teasing is fun in nature but also touches on important issues like faith.
I received an ARC copy of this book from Zimbell House Publishing through NetGalley, this is my honest review.
