The woman who changed the face of feminism with The Women’s Room brings us an unforgettable story of sisterhood, fatherhood, family, and love
In a Massachusetts hospital, as distinguished presidential adviser Stephen Upton lies mortally ill, four women gather at his lavish mansion. Half sisters Elizabeth, Mary, Alex, and Ronnie have painful and poignant memories of their childhoods—and of their father.
Born to different mothers, the sisters haven’t seen one another in years.
As Upton hovers between life and death, his daughters begin to open up about the man they love and hate. They share their stories and discover the terrible secret that binds them all together . . . the secret they kept even as they fought for Upton’s approval and affection. As they struggle to make peace with their father—and with one another—the women finally begin to heal and forgive the sins of the past.
Moving and eloquent, Our Father is a testament to the power of female bonding.
