Winner, 2011 Western Australian Book Awards At twenty-something, Alice is eager for the milestones of adulthood: leaving home, choosing a career, finding friendship and love on her own terms. But with each step she takes she feels the sharp tug of invisible threads: the love and worry of her parents, who want more than anything to keep her from harm. Her father fears for her safety to an extraordinary degree – but why? As she digs further into her father's story, Alice embarks on a journey of painful discovery: of memories lost and found, of her own fears for the future, of history and how it echoes down the years.

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.

Dr. Earl Henslin, explores how the father-daughter relationship affects the adult daughter. Father-daughter relationships damaged by abuse, betrayal and abandonment can be healed and reconnected through understanding and forgiveness. "You Are Your Father's Daughter" is a book for adult daughters (and fathers) who want to heal or improve the father-daughter connection. It helps readers understand that a daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. A daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. Every daughter has a deep, God-given need to be nurtured by her father. It is vital to a woman's development. A strong emotional and spiritual connection between a father and his daughter empowers her to achieve her God-given potential in the life. It provides a secure and safe foundation from which she can venture into the world. When the father-daughter connection is missing or broken by abuse, the daughter is robbed of the personal identity, feminine strength, private boundaries, self-respect, emotional health, and spiritual understanding that a godly father can give. This loss and the painful wound that results affects every area of her life -- relationships with men, role in the workplace, search for love and meaning in life. Dr. Henslin offers hope and healing to every daughter who knows the pain and loss of a broken, missing, or less-than-perfect father-daughter relationship. His compassionate understand and spiritual insight provide a pathway for restoration and a process for rebuilding the father-daughter bridge.

Since the publication of her autobiography, Sara Henderson has become a household name. There's barely a person in the country who doesn't know the now legendary story of how she saved her outback property from a million-dollar debt, hasn't heard about the philandering husband and the estrangement from her middle daughter Bonnie. But how much of what she writes is true and how much of it is fantasy? Tired of being misrepresented in her mother's books, Bonnie decided to set the record straight and asked journalist Debi Marshall to write her real story. And the result? Well, not since Jaon Crawford's daughter wrote Mommy Dearest has such an icon been so well and truly smashed. But Bonnie's story, Her Father's Daughter, is much more than that. It's a celebration of a remarkable bushwoman, of her fierce strength and wild, irrepressible spirit, her deep respect for the land she once called home and her abiding love for her reprobate father. Bonnie's mother hates Bullo River Station from the moment she lands on that million acres of red dust. And before long she comes to hate the manwho has brought her there too. Bonnie grows up in a household isolated from the rest of the world, in a place where every excess is indulged: 'Charles purposely cut the off from the outside world, and Sara was very often away. It was like living in Kenya in the 1930s; nothing was ruled out, there were no limits.' Charles and Sara fight constantly and use the children as weapons against eachother. Bonnie is her father's favourite - his inheriting daughter - and Murray-Lee is her mother's. To this day the two sisters bear the scars of their parent's gamess - they still don't speak to eachother. The one place Bonnie can escape the tenxion in the homestead is the bush and she comes to love and know the land as intimately as Old Mray, her Aboriginal companion. Bonnie has her father's indomitable spirit (doubtless what makes her mother so uncomfortable) and his willingness to tackle anything. She grows into adulthood as a superb horsewoman, pilot and cattlewoman. Wild and unruly, afraid of nothing, Bonnie is very different to her reserved mother, and the two grow further and further apart. In her late teens Bonnie takes over the running of the station and gradually emerges from the years of financial instability. When a neighbouring property Charles owns with Gus Trippe, his childhood friend, is sols, the property becomes debt-free. 'Sara talks about being left with a million-dollar debt, but the truth is that there was no debt ... Sara sold Charles' yacht after he died ... and a gold mine in Western Australia ... She puts the sudden cash flow down to having a miraculous stock market win, but I've lived in the bush too long to believe that.' Bonnie is by now utterly in love with flying and goes to Darwin to practice her aerobatics whenever she can fit it in to her hectic schedule at Bullo. It is in Darwin that she meets Arthur Palmer, a charismatic, intelligent and arrogant man - a replica of her father - and the two fall in love. Both Sara and Charles detest Arthur and this makes home life, already extremely tense, unbearable. 'The plain truth was that Daddy loathed him,' says Dannielle, Bonnie's younger sister. 'If he could, he would have put a hit on him. There's no question of that.' On a trip to Queensland Arthur persuades Bonnie to see a specialist about her jaw which, incredibly, has been causing her intense pain for fifteen years. The specialist insists Bonnie be operated on immediately and she is forced to call Sara to tell her she won't be back at Bullo for the muster. Bonnie thinks her mother will be able to cope. In fact it is the beginning of the end of their relationship. Sara screams down the phone at her daughter that she must return, then tells Charles that she is refusing to come home for the muster, without mentioning anything about the operation. As a result, Charles give Bonnie an ultimatum - Bullo or A

Current feminist theory has developed powerful explanations for some women writers' rebellion against patriarchy. But other women writers did not rebel; rather, they supported and celebrated patriarchy. Examining the lives and selected works of two late eighteenth-century writers, Hannah More and Maria Edgeworth, this book explores what it means for a woman writer to identify with her father and the patriarchal tradition he represents. Kowaleski-Wallace exposes the psychological, social, and historical factors that motivated such an identification, and reveals the consequences that result from being a "daddy's girl."

A theme that obsessed Shakespeare in over 20 plays from Titus Andronicus to The Tempest was the relationship between a daughter and her father. This study traces chronologically the development of this theme, relating it to the little we know of his own two daughters, and sheds new light on his exploration of the family that so dominated his approach to drama. Drawing on a lifetime's experience of playing Shakespearean roles, Oliver Ford Davies, a former university lecturer and now an Honorary Associate Artist of the RSC and Olivier Award winner, has written an engaging and deeply researched study of a topic that has intrigued him from playing Capulet in 1967, King Lear in 2002, to Polonius in 2008.

"In Her Father’s Daughter, Lucy K. Pick looks to a much-neglected aspect of the history of the Spanish kingdoms in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Her book is novel and original."—Teofilo Ruiz, author of A King Travels "Her Father’s Daughter will contribute to and enrich ongoing discussions regarding the role and evolution of the medieval monarchy."—Nuria Silleras-Fernandez, author of Chariots of Ladies In Her Father’s Daughter, Lucy K. Pick considers a group of royal women in the early medieval kingdoms of the Asturias and of León-Castilla; their lives say a great deal about structures of power and the roles of gender and religion within the early Iberian kingdoms. Pick examines these women, all daughters of kings, as members of networks of power that work variously in parallel, in concert, and in resistance to some forms of male power, and contends that only by mapping these networks do we gain a full understanding of the nature of monarchical power. Pick’s focus on the roles, possibilities, and limitations faced by these royal women forces us to reevaluate medieval gender norms and their relationship to power and to rethink the power structures of the era. Well illustrated with images of significant objects, Her Father’s Daughter is marked by Pick’s wide-ranging interdisciplinary approach, which encompasses liturgy, art, manuscripts, architecture, documentary texts, historical narratives, saints’ lives, theological treatises, and epigraphy.

A taut and subtle family drama from France. A little girl lives happily with her mother in war-torn Paris. She has never met her father, a prisoner of war in Germany. But then he returns and her mother switches her devotion to her husband. The girl realizes that she must win over her father to recover her position in the family. She confides a secret that will change their lives. Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘This is a poetic story about a girl’s love for her father. Told from the girl’s perspective, but with the clarity of an adult’s mind, we experience her desire to be noticed by the first man in her life. A rare examination of the bonds and boundaries between father and daughter.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘A delicate, discreet novel. Like its little heroine. Impressive.’ Sud Ouest Dimanche ‘Sizun’s beautifully controlled and simple story captures the surprisingly clear gaze of a little girl who discovers how adults excel in the art of concealment.’ Le Nouvel Observateur ‘This story brings to mind, like a slap in the face, our forgotten childhood memories. We remember the way adults fail to hear the tiny cries of the heart.’ Marie Claire

The father-daughter dyad features in the Hebrew Bible in all of narratives, laws, myths and metaphors. In previous explorations of this relationship, the tendency has been to focus on discrete stories - notable among them, Judges 11 (the story of Jephthah's human sacrifice of his daughter) and Genesis 19 (the dark tale of Lot's daughters' seduction of their father). By taking the full spectrum into account, however, the daughter emerges prominently as (not only) expendable and exploitable (as an emphasis on daughter sacrifice or incest has suggested) but as cherished and protected by her father. Depictions of daughters are multifarious and there is a balance of very positive and very negative images. While not uncritical of earlier feminist investigations, this book makes a contribution to feminist biblical criticism and utilizes methods drawn from the social sciences and psychoanalysis. Alongside careful textual analysis, Johanna Stiebert offers a critical evaluation of the heuristic usefulness of the ethnographic honour-shame model, of parallels with Roman family studies, and of the application and meaning of 'patriarchy'. Following semantic analysis of the primary Hebrew terms for 'father' (אב) and 'daughter' (בת), as well as careful examination of inter-family dynamics and the daughter's role vis-à-vis the son's, alongside thorough investigation of both Judges 11 and Genesis 19, and also of the metaphor of God-the-father of daughters Eve, Wisdom and Zion, Stiebert provides the fullest exploration of daughters in the Hebrew Bible to date.
