Summary
"The bond between father and daughter is undeniably special and often undeniably complicated. When that bond is broken by death, a woman's life and sense of self can change in profound, unexpected, and even confusing ways. Now Clea Simon, explores this crucial meeting point of grief and growth by delving into her own experience and those of other women to paint a portrait of the father-daughter relationship and its lifelong ramifications." "Filled with moving first-person stories, this book reveals the ways emotional and life changes may be shadowed by a father's death. From new patterns in careers and intimate relationships to changes in friendships and even feelings about motherhood, such shifts can be both guilt-and anger-provoking, and also often liberating. As many women find, the period following a father's death can be a time of critical personal development and discovery - about oneself as well as the man whose influence and legacy remain deeply present." "The majority of women will lose their fathers before the age of fifty, during the busiest, most productive years of their lives. This poignant, comforting, and insightful book paves the way for them, and for all women, to make peace with the past and with the adults they have become, and to face the question: What happens next?"--BOOK JACKET
