The United States is the world's leader in fatherless families.  Marginalized by society into a distant and unemotional role as the family's bread winner, we are only now beginning to understand the devestating effect of emotionally distant fathers on their daughters' health and well-being-- and for some, even on their spirituality.

Millions of women have suffered physical and emotional scars due to absent fathers, and have experienced the painful void not having this vital connection has created.  Both authors write from personal experience overcoming emotionally distant fathers, offering practical solutions and hope for healing this emotional and spiritual rift.

From how to forgive an abusive father, coping with loneliness, to nuturing healthy relationships, and much more-- this book is a tremendously empowering and enriching journey for women out of sadness and pain, breaking a legacy of loneliness and regret, to a renewed hope for their lives.  Included are chapter questions, pages for journaling, and a list of counseling resources.

This book has been pretty difficult to read due to the emotional level involved. Though this book has led me to a sense of healing. I know that healing cannot be done in just a few days or hours or one book. Though a book can help the process and this one definitely did. Read full review
