My Daughter's Army is a story of love, compassion and strength. The unbreakable bond between Adam and Sera is formed the moment Adam's daughter enters his life. The wonder of what Adam or Sera would do next kept enticing me to read just one more chapter. As a parent, I connected with Adam's concern to protect Sera and his desire to always keep her safe. Sera's innate compassion for others leads to compromises between father and daughter throughout Sera's life. It is their ability to speak openly and honestly with one another that makes both Adam and Sera feel valued and understood. As a woman, I admire Sera's strength as she travels around the world listening to the stories of women who have been suppressed, raped, physically attacked or beaten. Share my story is a request many women make to Sera which ignites Sera's passion to speak and take action to bring equality to the life of every woman. Through Sera we see the power that one person has to make a difference in the life of another. My Daughter's Army evokes the question in each reader's mind; are we as individuals willing to do what is humane and just without the need for applause or recognition by others?
The story begins with Adam Goodwin grieving over the loss of his companion, Michael, and then finding an abandoned baby in Grand Central station. The baby was handed over to the authorities. But Adam couldn't stop thinking about her, and wondered if she was ok. Being he's an attorney, he did a little investigating and found her. He winds up adopting her and names her, Sera. He raises her as a single parent with the assistance of his brother Aaron, and three women who live in his building. Based on peculiar and unusual occurrences surrounding Sera, Adam became concerned she may be delusional, especially when she continues to speak of her friend, Sophia, whom he deems as fictitious or imaginary. After she graduates high school, she decides to take a trip around the world with her three friends. When she returns however, she doesn't look herself. She had lost a lot of weight, and appeared frail, drained and exhausted. It all makes sense once she begins telling her father and uncle the types of things she and her friends experienced. After witnessing all that she had, she felt compelled to do something about it. She wanted to return, but her father suggested she start a blog instead. Her uncle Aaron helped set up the blog, and then she began writing the dramatic stories of the women she met. Little did any of them know, it would start a movement and result in thousands of young women following her on social media. However, things took a dramatic turn once she confessed she was the Daughter of God. I highly recommend My Daughter's Army and believe it's an important book that should be read by everyone.
