What does the first man in the life of a girl mean to her?
Are fathers someone daughters fear or admire?
On the other hand, do the fathers just want to be facilitators or friends?
And what if in some cases the daughters simply despise them?
Dads' Daughters is a collection of essays, seeking to examine this unique relationship from both the daughters' and the fathers' viewpoint. In these deeply introspective passages, there are daughters here who examine what their father meant to them, as also there are fathers who talk of their daughters and what that relationship means to them.
A soul-searching collection Dads' Daughters also highlights that ultimately it is the father's belief that succeeds in empowering his daughter.
