In Fatherless Women, Clea Simon, . .This is a warm, meaningful book on life after losing a father - one of the greatest losses you can experience in life. With lots of stories from dozens of women, it shows us how we grieve - not always what you'd expect! - and how, if we let ourselves mourn the death of our fathers, we can learn to appreciate them as humans and then understand all the ways they influenced us.

I am a fatherless woman. The thing one learns with FATHERLESS WOMEN is how to see them as human again. My father has not died yet (at least as far as I know), unlike the women at whom this book is aimed and whose stories it contains, but I am fatherless all the same. Although a bit dry, FATHERLESS WOMEN is a poignant exploration of what happens when adult daughters lose their fathers.

This author is an excellent essayist. I like her non fiction better than her fiction. While my dad died twenty years ago, there are still some unresolved issues. Some of the things this author said helped me with the healing. I know I am not alone; others bear this type of pain. And it goes beyond the loss of one family member. Families change and not always for the better with the loss of a father.
I wish the author had put in more about siblings, and how they change. One lone example comes late in the book with interviews with a woman called Bette. As the author says, “Bette’s family is real, not ideal.” The same could be said for my family. We were far from ideal. The loss of my father opened up deep scars that separated forever my mother, my sister and me.
As I read this book, I tried to understand what happened to us. Some answers don’t dome that easily.

As an adult I recently lost my Dad and unexpectedly had immense grief and confusion. This book was so helpful to me understanding what I was feeling and offered great hope of the things to come. Clea Simon explains her own personal findings as well as experiences from other women who have lost their dads, with particular focus on us as adults. She covers a broad range of women and their lives affected by their fathers, and then beyond when we face life without them. I was happy to know that his impact on me would grow, even after he was gone.

Awful! Blames the woman for everything. I wanted a book about giving over the death of my Dad, this wasn't a good choice. Do yourself a favor and pass on this book!

Since I lost my dad almost 10 years ago, I felt it was a book I needed to read. I still have a lot of unresolved issues surrounding my father's death and it has impacted me in a very negative way. I thought this book would provide me some insight into why I am still having problems with my dad's death. I related to some of the book, but not all of it. The author's circumstances were very different from mine but she does include interviews with many other women, some of whom I could relate to and some that I couldn't. I am not really sure if it has given me the additional insight I had hoped for but it a well researched and well written book and is worth reading. It seemed more of a personal journal of the author's life and her father's death rather than a psychological study of how our fathers' death affects us, but I am glad I read it anyway.

My father died almost a year ago and I bought this book in October 2004. I'm still having a hard time reading it; not because it's not easy reading, but because of the depth of emotion it conjures up as it pushes me to reflect on the relationship between me and my dad. No matter how old I get, I will always miss him and wish I could have stayed young and he could've lived forever. I think when I get to the end of this book, I will have gone through more healing through my grief. It's that kind of book..

As with many books of this sort, there were parts which were spot on when compared to my experience with the loss of my dear father almost four years ago. Those parts helped me by affirming that my experience has been similar to that of many other women. However, as with most books of this sort, there was much that did not apply and to which I could not relate. It would not be my choice in the early stages of loss & grief. At this point - four years down the road - it was a thought provoking read as I approach the fourth anniversary of this loss. This book allows for the introspection that I so needed at this time.
I purchased this book thinking that it also dealt with "girls" who have lost their fathers. My father passed when I was 4 years old and this was not the book for me. I didn't read the entire book, once I got into chapter one, I knew it didn't pertain to me. So, to help those of you who may want to purchase this book, it's really written for the age range of upper teens through adults of any age. It's also written to appeal to those who have had fairly good/ healthy relationships with their dads. I hope this review helps, I rated it 4 stars because it does seem very well written (what I read of it).
