📒My Fathers Daughter ✍ Hannah Pool
✏My Fathers Daughter Book Summary : What do you wear to meet your father for the first time? In 2004, Hannah Pool knew more about next season's lipstick colors than she did about Africa: a beauty editor for The Guardian newspaper, she juggled lattes and cocktails, handbags and hangouts through her twenties just like any other beautiful, independent Londoner. Her white, English adoptive relatives were beloved to her and were all the family she needed. Okay, if I treat it as a first date, then I'm on home turf. What image do I want to put across?...Classic, rather than trendy, and if my G-string doesn't pop out, I should be able to carry the whole thing off. Contacted by relatives she didn't know she had, she decided to visit Eritrea, the war-torn African country of her birth, and answer for herself the daunting questions every adopted child asks. Imagine what it's like to never have seen another woman or man from your own family. To spend your life looking for clues in the faces of strangers...We all need to know why we were given up. What Hannah Pool learned on her journey forms a narrative of insight, wisdom, wit, and warmth beyond all expectations. When I stepped off the plane in Asmara, I had no idea what lay ahead, or how those events would change me, and if I'd thought about it too hard I probably wouldn't have gotten farther than the baggage claim. A story that will "send shivers down [your] spine," (The Bookseller), My Fathers' Daughter follows Hannah Pool's brave and heartbreaking return to Africa to meet the family she lost -- and the father she thought was dead.
📒My Father S Daughter ✍ Sheila Fitzpatrick
✏My Father s Daughter Book Summary : How does a daughter tell the story of her father? Sheila Fitzpatrick was taught from an early age to question authority. She learnt it from her father, the journalist and radical historian Brian Fitzpatrick. But very soon, she began to turn her questioning gaze on him. Teasing apart the many layers of memory, Fitzpatrick reveals a complex portrait of an Australian family against a Cold War backdrop. As her relationship with her father fades from girlhood adoration to adolescent scepticism, she flees Melbourne for Oxford to start a new life. But it's not so easy to escape being her father's daughter. My Father's Daughter is a vivid evocation of an Australian childhood; a personal memoir told with the piercing insight of a historian.
📒In My Father S Garden ✍ Kim Chernin
✏In My Father s Garden Book Summary : Kim Chernin's mother was a leftist firebrand, an American Marxist at mid-century, when it was dangerous to be one. Her father, a quiet man, was no less radical. Why then, decades later, does their daughter--a liberal California psychoanalyst and writer--find herself drawn toward a spirituality that would have shocked her parents? Through three personal stories, Chernin tackles the questions that pull at all of us: how to make sense in a world whose order isn't always apparent, and how to find balance between the mind and the spirit. "Kim Chernin writes with immediacy and intimacy."--City Life, London.
📒My Fathers Daughter ✍ Lindy Bruzzone
✏My Fathers Daughter Book Summary : As a child, Lindy Bruzzone knew how she would die. It would be like everyone else in her family who had passed away from cancer—her father, his father, and his mother. For them, it was how life ended. In My Father’s Daughter, Bruzzone tells the story of a family confronting challenges beginning in the early 1600s when they crossed the ocean seeking freedom. They migrated westward and settled in Los Angeles County in the 1890s. It was there members of her grandfather’s family died, one by one, of cancer. She offers childhood memories of growing up within the security of small town, Carson City, Nevada, where her parents live humbly and teach their children to care for themselves in the event cancer strikes again. She challenges mortality—first as a teen, then as a single mother working within California prison yards of Soledad and later at San Quentin, and supervising the most violent parolees on California’s mean streets of Oakland and Richmond. She works as an investigative consultant while she waits her turn for cancer to strike. My Father’s Daughter discusses the day she was finally diagnosed with late staged cancer. Instead of the ending of a life, a new beginning occurs. Bruzzone undertakes a genetic journey working with her medical team to understand and live with the hereditary cancer condition of Lynch syndrome. A roadmap for survival, this memoir inspires strength and gratitude in seeing how Bruzzone learns how to live as her father’s daughter.

✏My Father s Daughter Book Summary : Frank Sinatra seemed to have it all: genius, wealth, the love of beautiful women, glamorous friends from Las Vegas to the White House. But in this startling and remarkably outspoken memoir, his youngest daughter reveals to us an acutely restless, lonely and conflicted man. Through his marriages and front-page romances and the melancholy gaps between, Frank Sinatra searched for a contentment that eluded him.

MY FATHER'S DAUGHTER, with its unflinching account of Sinatra's flaws and foibles, will shock many of his fans. At the same time, it is a deeply affectionate portrait written with love and warmth, a celebration of a daughter's fond esteem for her father and a respect for his great legacy. The world remembers Frank Sinatra as one of the giants of the show business. In this book from someone inside the legend, Tina Sinatra remembers him as something more: a father, and a man.
📒My Father S Daughter ✍ Victoria Wilson Darrah
✏My Father s Daughter Book Summary : Ugandan author Victoria Wilson Darrah takes us on a fascinating journey that spans several continents, challenges her belief in God, & celebrates the beautiful relationship she shared with her father. Darrah escaped Idi Amin's reign of terror at the age of sixteen to become a twentieth-century prodigal in the campus life of California.

When her father, the Rev. John Wilson, a famous African evangelist, is brutally assassinated while trying to reconcile the warring factions in Uganda, Victoria faces a crisis that only God can see her through. As a result, Darrah has spent much of the past years since her father's death fighting to keep his legacy & his dream for peace & reconciliation alive, making this a very tender book. For those who want an uncompromising encounter with the God of the Bible, MY FATHER'S DAUGHTER takes Christianity onto a whole new level. With keen insight & refreshing frankness, Darrah writes about fathers & daughters, mothers & their children, society, politics, love & other subjects. It is about the road to peace & reconciliation.
