"The Con Man's Daughter", by Candice Curry
Ms. Curry bravely shares with grace what it was like to grow up with a con man and a convicted criminal.
The author writes with so much heart about her painful childhood and how deep the wounds left by her father had affected her well-being. This is an emotional story of a kid with an unimaginable childhood that kept a brave face and hid her turmoil to herself. She only wanted to be love and accepted. This quick and easy read drew me in from page one, told plainly without bitterness she speaks with respect of her feeling towards her father. Later on in life she seeks redemption and was able to find solace in god and finally peace of heart with a loving husband and children. This is a unique and heartbreaking journey that ends beautifully.
This testimony took courage to write and I admire Ms. Curry for doing so. If God was her path to forgiveness and happiness I am happy it worked….
It is hard to like or dislike memoirs after all they belong to the author. It is the way it is said and Ms. Curry does it with passion.
