Daddy’s Girls is a rich yet simple family tale of love, madness and spirit told in the three first-person points of view of its three women. Overlapping vignettes create a vivid patchwork of life’s defining moments to reveal dark forces lurking beneath the family’s typical middle-class veneer as they struggle to love one another. The story is fiction with a dash of magical realism, but the inspiration is autobiographical.

Daddy’s Girls recently received a glowing review from Terry Mathews of She calls it “A book that will speak to you on many levels...that can alter your perception of the world, broaden your horizons and urge you to think outside the box. The best book I´ve read since Cunningham´s THE HOURS.” And Ruth Williams, author of “Younger Than That Now” says “Daddy´s Girls is a luxuriant narrative, telling the stories of three complex women — two sisters and their mother — and how their lives are impacted by the mental illness of one. A fascinating and obviously well-informed look at heartbreaking realities. This is a book written from the heart.”

There was not enough sexual tension between the dad and the daughter fuck I hate this book.
