Leading British historian John Guy, author of Thomas Becket and My Heart is My Own, uncovers one of the most touching and compelling family relationships in history in A Daughter's Love. Sir Thomas More is a stalwart figure of British history. Lord Chancellor in Henry Tudor's government, opposed to Henry VIII's marriage to Anne Boleyn and famously executed for treason, he is a well-studied and eminent figure. John Guy's revealing new work sheds light on a little known aspect of More, as a politician and as a man. His daughter Margaret played a key role in More's private and public life, but has been all but hidden from his story. Neglected from previous historical works, A Daughter's Love uses original sources to reveal a deep and loving relationship between father and daughter. Margaret, a prodigy encouraged by her father, was highly skilled in Latin and Greek, even emending texts from the prominent scholar Erasmus. She became her father's advisor, confidante and friend, exchanging long, loving letters during his incarceration and providing comfort in his final hours. It is these letters, which she smuggled from the Tower, that provide compelling new insights into the famed politician. A Daughter's Love is a riveting new portrait of Thomas More and the daughter who played a central role in his life and work, from one of Britain's most acclaimed historians. 'An arresting reassessment . . . An outstanding talent for stop-the-reader-dead-in-their-tracks gripping storytelling. Guy's convincing page-turner of a double life has restored my faith in biography as a genre' Lisa Jardine, Sunday Times 'Gripping . . . Guy's scholarship is irreproachable' Independent on Sunday 'Brilliantly observed and told . . . [Guy's] absorbing, thoroughly researched book does justice to two exemplary women - and reminds us that history is full of ironies' Claire Tomalin, The New York Times John Guy is an award-winning historian, accomplished broadcaster and a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge. His previous books include My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, winner of the 2004 Whitbread Biography Award and the Marsh Biography Award, a history, Tudor England, which has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide and a biography of Thomas Becket published in 2012.

To My Daughters, with love is the story of a mother’s fierce love for her daughters and her struggle to keep them with her. Gitty Gold, a successful designer and divorced mother of two, lives in the lap of luxury in Spain – yet feels incomplete. She returns to Judaism with a passion, only to face a challenge of enormous proportions. This is the story of her bitter ordeal. With trembling hands, I took the white envelope from the shelf, trying to guess its contents, “Seville Juvenile Court” – what did they want? I slit open the envelope and pulled out the papers inside. They spread out on the table in a veritable flood of words, letters, and confusing sentences. What? The room spun. What in the world...? “Urgent request... unsuitable guardian... unfit parent... devilish sect... dangerous mystical cult...” Not fit to be a mother! It can’t be! But that’s what it said, in black and white. My ex- husband was claiming sole custody of our two daughters. Powerful. Poignant. Unforgettable.

Fathers are important role models for their daughters. They are the first men that their daughters relate to, and the relationships with their fathers set the tone for any relationships their daughters have in the future. There is no doubt that fathers-daughter relationships impact daughters both positively and negatively. There are similarities between the father-daughter relationships, the daughters perception of themselves, and how other men perceive them to be. Daughters drastically need their fathers support, acceptance, and love. Daughters who have positive relationships with their fathers are left with strong values, confidence, and high self-esteem. The daughters who have experience failed relationships with their fathers are in need for compassionate relationships with other men and other people who are vulnerable to their plan. Daughters who suffer from negative relationships should learn to place high values on themselves, acknowledge that they are somebody, and that they hold the key to their own happiness. Many people do not identify the impact fathers have on their daughters lives. As a result, these daughters can go through endlessly with no expectations of healing from the damage caused by lack of positive relationships with their fathers. If one is to comprehend the impact of father-daughter relationships, one must be open to comprehend the effect of that relationships. Fathers impacts their relationship with their daughters, especially the role fathers play after divorce. After parents divorce, daughters have various feelings of support, love, comfort, discomfort, honor, and disappointment. When fathers are part of their daughters lives, they grow up feeling safe, secured, and protected, because their fathers were always around. Daughters needs their fathers to be the standard against which they will judge all men.
