  • Through a Daughter’s Eyes

    What do you say when someone apologizes for the death of your dad? “It seemed like we were watching a sad movie that we were really invested in, but it could be turned off by the click of a remote. Life would automatically switch back to normal, and everything would be okay again. Looking into the faces of my best friends, I saw that it wasn’t going to happen.” Thirteen-year-old Mary, the middle of three girls, tells the raw and honest account of her family’s journey when her dad is diagnosed with cancer. Through a Daughter’s Eyes is a heart-wrenching true story about family, strength, and persevering through hardship.
