After 20-plus years of marriage and parenting, Wil LaVeist, a popular columnist and radio host in Virginia, uncovered a family secret that dropped him and his adult daughter to their knees. A chance DNA test revealed that his "daddy's girl" is not his biological child. LaVeist instead focused on the future, confronting the root cause that led to this tremendous pain and his daughter's resentment as she tries to cope with the truth. Dear Daughter is his love letter from a "girl dad" to his daughter, and to all women who've had broken relationships with their fathers. Circumstances that often lead to reckless relationship choices that cause great pain to loved ones. In this, ironically, pro-marriage work, LaVeist weaves the advice of experts with storytelling - including his own journey ending in divorce court. He reveals the damaging flaws of paternity laws that fail children. He bridges the "deadbeat dads" gap, delivering transparent provocative dialogue on love, pain, healing and the law that good dad's share often share with their daughters and sons, but that many women miss when their fathers are absent or dysfunctional. Dear Daughter will appeal to women who are considering love, marriage and parenting, but also men who desire healthy long-term love relationships.
