Description

Losing a father can be absolutely wrenching. This insightful guide tells the story of the strong connections between daughters and dads throughout life, and the consequent grief and loss a daughter feels when her father dies. Stories from 50 women offer glimpses into the many aspects of the father/daughter relationships that are warm and nurturing, sometimes complicated and conflicted, and always solid and enduring. The Italian American women interviewed ultimately find great peace and meaning in the on-going relationship with their fathers, even after death. Using these women's stories, the readers are presented with a multi-faceted discussion filled with amusement, complexity and intensity, struggle and resistance, and above all, remarkably powerful family bonds. Daughters, Dads, and the Path Through Grief leads the reader to understanding and loving the father/daughter relationship, and ultimately finding a way to live through the grief.
