Fathers Can Be Good Dads
The Growing Relationship of a Daughter and Her Father
About the Book
Fathers Can Be Good Dads is a novel, which is based on true events. Even though dates, houses, names of people, countrysides, and sceneries have been changed, the family interactions are real. However, not all have been the actions of Ginia Marie Giselle Hinson, the heroine of the book. The majority, though, are. When the author was a little girl, she often sat around the family sitting-room table or stood outside the doors, listening as the grown-ups in her family were sharing with loud laughter the mischiefs they had gotten themselves into when they were young. Often, the author wondered how she could improve on these mischiefs just to get a bit more attention. A heartfelt thank you is expressed to all family members and friends the author had listened to. Everyone was an inspiration to her. Also a thank you is given to all those she had interacted with and to all those who got into trouble with her in moments of absolute exuberance where household rules were ignored. The novel is dedicated to every writer who has struggled through the ups and downs of putting together personal memoirs to preserve, in writing for children and their children’s children, an insight into a life that once existed before their own times.
