How does a daughter tell the story of her father? Sheila Fitzpatrick was taught from an early age to question authority. She learnt it from her father, the journalist and radical historian Brian Fitzpatrick. But very soon, she began to turn her questioning gaze on him. Teasing apart the many layers of memory, Fitzpatrick reveals a complex portrait of an Australian family against a Cold War backdrop. As her relationship with her father fades from girlhood adoration to adolescent scepticism, she flees Melbourne for Oxford to start a new life. But it's not so easy to escape being her father's daughter. My Father's Daughter is a vivid evocation of an Australian childhood; a personal memoir told with the piercing insight of a historian.

Then one day a woman appears at the front door claiming to be Caroline -- Winston's half sister, who was kidnapped and presumed dead long before he and Heidi were born. Is she really Caroline?

As a child, Lindy Bruzzone knew how she would "someday" die. It would be from cancer as what occurred with almost everyone in her family up to her generation. Bruzzone tells the story of an American family coming to America in the early 1600s, through today. Defying the odds of fate while pioneering a new country, the stories Lindy's ancestors leave behind inspire the following generations to endure future challenges of facing hardship and survival. Lindy shares the fear and uncertainty earlier family members experienced living with an unknown hereditary cancer syndrome during the eugenics movement in the early 1900s. Its mission was the mass sterilization of individuals considered "inferior" in an attempt to develop a "better breed" of persons. Bruzzone takes the reader inside the notorious San Quentin prison and upon California's mean streets where she works as a parole agent. There, she learns there are many ways to die as she flirts with danger and defies mortality. Finally, embarking upon a genetic journey, Lindy recounts the challenges of her own battles with cancer and how she learns to save her family and herself from hereditary cancers. Providing inspiration and serving as a working guide of how one family confronted difficult challenges in life, My Father's Daughter serves as a guide in how to survive life's challenges and live with the hereditary cancers of Lynch syndrome. This revised 2017 edition of My Father's Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancers, is scheduled to be released to the public in August of 2017.
Divine intervention! Some things are meant to be, in time. Based on society's standards, when Sandy was growing up, her situation was considered a disgrace or embarrassment. While on the other hand it was disguised and accepted. It was one of those things that affected many but was not always openly discussed. Sandy was somewhere in the middle concerning her stigmatization. However, with inner determination and God's help, she was committed to unfold the details of her situation (and maybe yours too!) to finally put a period in the area that left her feeling somewhat deficient and incomplete.
