How does a daughter tell the story of her father? Sheila Fitzpatrick was taught from an early age to question authority. She learnt it from her father, the journalist and radical historian Brian Fitzpatrick. But very soon, she began to turn her questioning gaze on him. Teasing apart the many layers of memory, Fitzpatrick reveals a complex portrait of an Australian family against a Cold War backdrop. As her relationship with her father fades from girlhood adoration to adolescent scepticism, she flees Melbourne for Oxford to start a new life. But it's not so easy to escape being her father's daughter. My Father's Daughter is a vivid evocation of an Australian childhood; a personal memoir told with the piercing insight of a historian.

Frank Sinatra seemed to have it all: genius, wealth, the love of beautiful women, glamorous friends from Las Vegas to the White House. But in this startling and remarkably outspoken memoir, his youngest daughter reveals to us an acutely restless, lonely and conflicted man. Through his marriages and front-page romances and the melancholy gaps between, Frank Sinatra searched for a contentment that eluded him. For the first time Tina writes candidly about the wedge his manipulative fourth wife, Barbara Marx, drove between father and daughter. MY FATHER'S DAUGHTER, with its unflinching account of Sinatra's flaws and foibles, will shock many of his fans. At the same time, it is a deeply affectionate portrait written with love and warmth, a celebration of a daughter's fond esteem for her father and a respect for his great legacy. The world remembers Frank Sinatra as one of the giants of the show business. In this book from someone inside the legend, Tina Sinatra remembers him as something more: a father, and a man.

Divine intervention! Some things are meant to be, in time. Based on society's standards, when Sandy was growing up, her situation was considered a disgrace or embarrassment. While on the other hand it was disguised and accepted. It was one of those things that affected many but was not always openly discussed. Sandy was somewhere in the middle concerning her stigmatization. However, with inner determination and God's help, she was committed to unfold the details of her situation (and maybe yours too!) to finally put a period in the area that left her feeling somewhat deficient and incomplete.

What do you wear to meet your father for the first time? In 2004, Hannah Pool knew more about next season's lipstick colors than she did about Africa: a beauty editor for The Guardian newspaper, she juggled lattes and cocktails, handbags and hangouts through her twenties just like any other beautiful, independent Londoner. Her white, English adoptive relatives were beloved to her and were all the family she needed. Okay, if I treat it as a first date, then I'm on home turf. What image do I want to put across?...Classic, rather than trendy, and if my G-string doesn't pop out, I should be able to carry the whole thing off. Contacted by relatives she didn't know she had, she decided to visit Eritrea, the war-torn African country of her birth, and answer for herself the daunting questions every adopted child asks. Imagine what it's like to never have seen another woman or man from your own family. To spend your life looking for clues in the faces of strangers...We all need to know why we were given up. What Hannah Pool learned on her journey forms a narrative of insight, wisdom, wit, and warmth beyond all expectations. When I stepped off the plane in Asmara, I had no idea what lay ahead, or how those events would change me, and if I'd thought about it too hard I probably wouldn't have gotten farther than the baggage claim. A story that will "send shivers down [your] spine," (The Bookseller), My Fathers' Daughter follows Hannah Pool's brave and heartbreaking return to Africa to meet the family she lost -- and the father she thought was dead.

As a child, Lindy Bruzzone knew how she would "someday" die. It would be from cancer as what occurred with almost everyone in her family up to her generation. Bruzzone tells the story of an American family coming to America in the early 1600s, through today. Defying the odds of fate while pioneering a new country, the stories Lindy's ancestors leave behind inspire the following generations to endure future challenges of facing hardship and survival. Lindy shares the fear and uncertainty earlier family members experienced living with an unknown hereditary cancer syndrome during the eugenics movement in the early 1900s. Its mission was the mass sterilization of individuals considered "inferior" in an attempt to develop a "better breed" of persons. Bruzzone takes the reader inside the notorious San Quentin prison and upon California's mean streets where she works as a parole agent. There, she learns there are many ways to die as she flirts with danger and defies mortality. Finally, embarking upon a genetic journey, Lindy recounts the challenges of her own battles with cancer and how she learns to save her family and herself from hereditary cancers. Providing inspiration and serving as a working guide of how one family confronted difficult challenges in life, My Father's Daughter serves as a guide in how to survive life's challenges and live with the hereditary cancers of Lynch syndrome. This revised 2017 edition of My Father's Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancers, is scheduled to be released to the public in August of 2017.
