The author was drawn to doing this research because of her own lack of a father. Her father died when she was 3 1/2 and she was always envious of her friends' relationships with their fathers and curious about what her own relationship would have been like.
She also watched her husband's relationship with her daughter and saw how it differed from how she related to her daughter. She was led to interview a number of women, young and old, about their relationships with their fathers and how they felt about those relationships. I found her insights from these interesting and became more thankful for my own relationship with my father.
As she found, whether good or bad, our fathers are always with us.
