Father Figure by James J. Cudney

Father Figure

I read this book in 2 sittings.  It is an easy solid read. Cudney switches back and forth between two major characters, Molly (Mom) and Brianna (daughter).  For Brianna this is a coming of age story where as Molly is forced to deal with her past. Brianna does not know who her father is and Molly refuses to tell her anything, absolutely anything, about her past.  Unfortunately, Brianna can not move forward with her life without knowing who her father is and filling this huge void, and I do mean huge because Molly is not capable of making a decision without the angst of who her father is impacting it.  Having been adopted I can certainly understand the main character being curious about her father but the desperate need for knowledge felt by Brianna seems to be over the top. In the middle of this story another story line exists about Brianna’s sexual preference. Even this can not be determined until she discovers the truth about her father.  Every character in the book is connected – there is no 6 degrees of separation here it is 3 degrees. There is no question that this book will make you think about whether or not honesty is the best policy and how a little knowledge can make a big difference in how decisions are made.
