Her Father's Daughter

Her Father's Daughter

by Alice Pung
Publication Date: 30/01/2013
RRP  $19.99 $17.25
At twenty-something, Alice is eager for the milestones of adulthood- leaving home, choosing a career, finding friendship and love on her own terms. But with each step she takes she feels the sharp tug of invisible threads- the love and worry of her parents, who want more than anything to keep her from harm. Her father fears for her safety to an extraordinary degree - but why?
As she digs further into her father's story, Alice embarks on a journey of painful discovery- of memories lost and found, of her own fears for the future, of history and how it echoes down the years. Set in Melbourne, China and Cambodia, Her Father's Daughter captures a father-daughter relationship in a moving and astonishingly powerful way.
