Whatever Happened to Daddy's Little Girl?

In this powerful, searingly intimate book, accomplished journalist, poet and fiction writer jonetta rose barras, breaks the silence and gives voice to the experiences of America's fatherless women--starting with herself. "I know fatherlessness," writes barras. "A girl abandoned by the first man in her life forever entertains powerful feelings of being unworthy or incapable of receiving any man's love. Even when she receives loves...she is intensely fearful of losing it. This is the anxiety, the pain of losing one father. I had three fathers toss me aside; the cumulative effect was catastrophic."

Vivid. Piercing. This book has great value. Barras speaks with the passion and penetrating detail of someone has first hand experience."
