If My Father Loved Me by Rosie Thomas

IF MY FATHER LOVED ME - ROSIE THOMAS

This was a very powerful and deeply moving read about the main character's relationship with her father, and the need to reinterpret her relationship with him after his death. The real skill likes in the intricate depiction of the family relationships and how they change and develop over time.

 

I also loved the gentle romance with the teacher in the book, and how that is resolved. I couldn't put the book down. Verdict: simply excellent.
