Distance. Divorce. Death.
Those are three circumstances that can lead to a father’s absence. HE NEVER CAME HOME: Interviews, Stories, and Essays from Daughters on Life Without Their Fathers explores the varying range of emotions a daughter endures as a result.
The 22-essay collection is a portrait of the fatherless daughter, from adolescence through adulthood, and features the stories of women from various ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds, each of whom understands what it means, and how it feels, to grow up without her father. With a foreword penned by MSNBC’s A.M. Joy host, Joy-Ann Reid, and stories by Emmy Award-winning actress Regina King, fitness expert and New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Reece, and jewelry designer, Simone I. Smith, HE NEVER CAME HOME is an open forum for the fatherless woman to express her pain, hope, angst and healing, minus any judgments… and without apology.
