This is a story told first-person by Al. He's a sweet and simple man. He has an enormous heart, and Larry recognizes it. I read this quickly; it's not terribly long. It's a simple narration of their life together: start, middle, and HEA...as much as it can be. There's minimal conflict, and it's a sweet story. I really enjoy how the author used Al's voice. Very different than any other first-person book I can recall and done brilliantly.
