Following the success of his first book, Ravey D. Wesley brings a novel about the essence of parenthood in today’s fast paced society

“I write action novels filled with my vision to create a better tomorrow for our children as they finish high school. If we inform parents, guardians, and our leaders, we can begin investing in our children today,” author Ravey D. Wesley states as he once again brings a book that raises awareness among families, communities and the government about the important role of the parents to mold a child’s perspective in life. “Government Program” follows one father’s journey through witnessing firsthand what mothers do to raise a child.

After many years of marriage and two children, a man decided to divorce his wife when he realized that his needs were not being met. He thought he could still fulfill his fatherly responsibility, providing for the family financially, and get the love he deserved. He did not understand why his wife shared none of her attention with him after a long day or week after work.

The mother didn’t appreciate the idea of raising the children without any input from the father as he spent all his time focusing on money and ignored what her needs were. She wanted him to help take responsibility and raising his children as well, by doing what she did to raise and child. Instead, he only played games with his children, and demanded her affection later. They disagreed about their roles in the marriage. Soon, those disagreements will seem petty when the family’s life would change after the father made a decision that would forever change the lives of his children. Readers will follow a fictional yet realistic story in “Government Program,” a stirring tale of values, priorities, family and love.
