Publisher's Summary

When Motherless Daughters was published 20 years ago, it unleashed a tsunami of healing awareness. When Denna Babul and Karin Luise couldn't find the equivalent book for fatherlessness, The Fatherless Daughter Project was born. The book will set fatherless women on the path to growth and fulfillment by helping them to understand how their losses have impacted their lives.

A father is supposed to provide a sense of security and stability. Losing a father comes with particular costs that vary depending on the way he left and how old a girl was when she lost him. Drawing on interviews with over 5,000 women who became fatherless due to death, divorce, neglect, and outright abandonment, the authors have found that fatherless daughters tend to push their emotions underground. These issues in turn become distinct patterns in their relationships as adult women, and they often can't figure out why.

Delivered with compassion and expertise, this book allows listeners support and understanding they never had when they first needed it and it encourages the conversation to continue.

Life changing audiobook

As a fatherless daughter this hit me close to home. I didn’t know that my parent’s separation and my father’s death has a huge impact in my life. I found out why I have poor esteem and seem to be desperate in finding love. I’m in the process of working on myself and surrounding myself with supportive and loving people. Still a long way to go. Kudos to all the makers of this book! Definitely worth the read.
