In the excellent In Search of Fatherhood: A Mother Lode of Wisdom from the World of Daughterhood, Renner interviews adult women about their relationships with their fathers. Renner wants to know how these father-daughter relationships affect a girl’s development and her choices throughout her life. Renner hopes his book will help readers to learn what is good in their own relationships and what they can improve. Told in the women’s own words, these haunting and captivating interviews make this book difficult to put down.
Renner offers his readers stories of fathers who were positive influences in their daughters’ lives, fathers who were both good and bad at parenting, and fathers who were absent, abusive, or harmful. These interviews are both heartwarming and heartbreaking, and readers can easily see themselves reflected in these women’s lives, making this book valuable for both fathers and daughters.
