Fatherless Women by Clea Simon

Book Description

"Elegant prose ...sheds new light on the father-daughter dynamic" -Boston magazine Praise for Fatherless WOMEN "If it can be said about a book on loss, Fatherless Women is a pleasure to read. Clea Simon is a warm, honest, intelligent, and trustworthy guide, not only for grieving women but for the men who support them. Simon's insights about father-daughter relationships are profound." -Neil Chethik, author of FatherLoss "Clea Simon deepens our understanding of the complicated emotions daughters feel about fathers, both during life and especially after death. This book will help heal rifts and set stuck energies free." -Beth Witrogen McLeod, author of Caregiving: The Spiritual Journey of Love, Loss, and Renewal "Unusually candid and often provocative ...Simon's book is immensely thought-provoking about a topic that all of us will face." -Pauline Boss, Ph.D., author of Ambiguous Loss: Learning to Live with Unresolved Grief There is a special bond between a father and a daughter, and when that bond is broken by death, a woman's life can change in profound and unexpected ways. Clea Simon, critically acclaimed author of Mad House, explores this crucial meeting point of grief and growth by delving into her own experience and those of other women to paint an illuminating portrait of the father-daughter relationship and its lifelong ramifications. Filled with moving stories of real women, this poignant, comforting, and insightful book paves the way for all women to make peace with the past, with the adults they have become, and to courageously face the question: what happens next?
