Reviews
"This book will be most enjoyable for adult women who are grappling with, cherishing, searching for, or remembering their fathers. These women's voices will also give fathers---young, old, and in between -- -- "Foreword Reviews"
"A collection of essays on the father-daughter dynamic. Editor and novelist McMullan presents 24 ways of "knowing" one's father by accomplished, independent daughters, each with a folksy introduction to help situate the relationship in place and time....Consistently elucidating portraits." -- -- "Kirkus Reviews"
