Book Description

From the master storyteller and award-winning author John Clanchy comes a collection of five new tales of contemporary families, exploring the fascinating, and often fraught, relations between fathers and daughters. An honest man, confronting the unpalatable facts of his step-daughter's life, decides he must barter truth for lies to protect the woman he loves. A teenage girl goes in search of the father she hasn't seen since early childhood, only to discover a man startlingly different from the one she's imagined. An older man on the cusp of extinction finds that the one person he needs most is the daughter he's never valued. Love, loss, lust, loyalty and betrayal drive these stories. But it is longing - a matchless yearning - that completes them.
