DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

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.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

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.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

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 OF THE BOOK:

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."

Poor Little Rich Boy Winston Carmichael has it all: a big house, servants, vacations in Palm Beach, and a fancy private school. But with overprotective parents and a sense of responsibility for his younger sister, Heidi, Winston sometimes feels more as if he's living in a prison than a dream. Then one day a woman appears at the front door claiming to be Caroline -- Winston's half sister, who was kidnapped and presumed dead long before he and Heidi were born. Is she really Caroline? Is she an imposter? Or is she something far more complicated than either? And does she hold the key that could unlock the door to Winston's prison?
