THE FATHER EFFECT
HOPE AND HEALING FROM A DAD'S ABSENCE. Author John Finch always struggled after his father committed suicide when he was eleven, but it wasn't until he was raising his own three daughters that he truly understood their futures relied on his coming to terms with his difficult past. To move forward, he needed to forgive both his father for leaving, and himself for not being the best father he could be. This journey led to the film of the same name and to this book, both of which help anyone--man or woman--seeking to heal from the absence of a father and wanting to change their legacy as a parent.
