A father wounded in his psychological development, Linda Leonard believes, cannot often give his daughter the care and guidance she needs. Using examples from her own life and her work with clients, as well as dreams, fairy tales, myths, films, and literature, Leonard charts paths toward psychological transformation and a fruitful, caring relationship between men and women, fathers and daughters—one that honors both the mutuality and the uniqueness of the sexes.
"[An] elegant and profoundly original vision of feminine psychology. A revelation for men, an inspiration for women, it offers all of us the chance to break the bitter cycle."—Alan Rinzler, The San Francisco Chronicle.
