Yvonne Caputo has been a storyteller all her life. As a teacher, psychotherapist, corporate trainer and consultant, she’s used stories to widen the eyes of her students, to soften the pain in the hearts of her clients, and to bring a point home for her audience.
She has a masters degree in education and psychology, loves history and traveling, and lives in rural southeastern Pennsylvania with her husband and dog.
Flying With Dad is Yvonne's first book.
As a father, Michael Caputo could be distant and brusque.
Growing up, Yvonne and her siblings had a roof over their heads and meals on the table
...Yvonne Caputo charts her journey to her father through the re-telling of the stories
he told to her during two years of weekly phone calls.
As she learned to meet him where he was,
instead of where she wanted him to be,
the result was intimacy, deep abiding respect, and a no-regrets final goodbye.
...Yvonne’s relationship with this ordinary and extraordinary man
continues to blossom: in the milky contrails in the sky,
the blooms of the Christmas Cactus, and the Blue Jay that appears
just as she thinks of another question she’d like to ask her dad.
