“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
This Frederick Douglass quote opens the story of a man's journey to overcome the trauma of his father's sudden absence from his home and, ultimately, his life. Author Tim Wortham, Jr. recalls childhood experiences and the impact his father's departure had on his development. His story helps dispel the myth that daddy issues are reserved for girls and women. This book is written for the men and boys who have struggled with processing their feelings around their fathers' absence and the people who love them.
