Description :

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.

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.

Description :

A life of one of Israel’s greatest heroes, as seen through his daughter’s eyes Moshe Dayan was one of the greatest military leaders in Israel’s short history. A child of the first kibbutz movement in British Palestine, he went on to lead Israel to victory in the 1948 War of Independence and to liberate Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War. Dayan was not only a soldier but a politician, an archaeologist, and a larger-than-life figure who helped shape the state of Israel. In My Father, His Daughter, Yaël Dayan, who herself served in the Israeli Parliament, shares an uncensored look into her father’s life and her own conflicted relationship with him. With poignancy and candor, Dayan creates a profound yet nuanced profile of her father. She relates his strong national pride, his boldness in dealing with other world leaders, and his troubles at home to his disintegrating marriage and multiple affairs. As revealing as My Father, His Daughter is of the man behind the myth, it is also a snapshot of a loving relationship between Yaël and Moshe Dayan, and of a daughter’s admiration and respect for a complicated but loving father.

Description :

What is your true identity? How was it shaped: through your parents, your friends, a spouse, etc.? Or, is your identity defined by your relationship with God, the Heavenly Father who knew you before you were born and placed in you a purpose that only you can complete in life? For Jessica Rollins, her identity had been determined through the difficult challenges and circumstances she underwent from her birth into adulthood. It wasn't until God found her, through salvation in Jesus, that she came to discover her true identity in Christ. Her story is revealed in the new book by author Angela Bailey, I Am My Father's Daughter, which accompanies Jessica's story with helpful words of wisdom situated in biblical truths. Jessica began her life as one of fourteen children to a single mother involved with a married man. An unfortunate cooking accident led to Jessica suffering second-degree burns on her body...but meeting the man, Mr. Jake, who was her father. Their lack of relationship only intensified Jessica's efforts to find her identity and love in other places, even in sex trafficking on the streets of Tennessee. Despite her circumstances, Jessica continued to pray to God for Him to love her and release her from the lies of Satan that had crippled her identity. Little did Jessica know the amazing ways God would answer this heartfelt prayer and bless her with the relationship she desperately needed from her Father. I Am My Father's Daughter is not only a reflection on the journey Jessica endured to realize herself as a beloved daughter of God, but to educate women of all ages in the blessed peace that comes from finding one's identity in Christ. Your identity shouldn't be placed in the hands of any person, place or thing, but in the only hands that can help your identity bloom in its purpose: God's."
