Her Father's Daughter: A Novel of a Touching Father-Daughter Relationship

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? From the bestselling author of The Sisterhood, a riveting novel about the daughter of author Leo Tolstoy, based on original letters and diary entries ? A treat for lovers of historical fiction

1909, Russia. 39-year-old Tatiana has all the reasons to be happy: her father is possibly the world's greatest living author; her financial future is secure, and she is in love. Yet her father, 70-year-old Leo Tolstoy, opposes the marriage. This is not the first time-he had scared away four of Tatiana's suitors. In fact, her father does not see why she should marry and enslave herself to a man. Yet Tatiana knows that she is not getting any younger. Having dedicated her life to her father's career and to the raising of her ten siblings, she feels now is her time to spread her wings. The only question is whether she has any?

With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Caroline Dubois captures the epic panorama of pre-revolution Russia and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the daughter's struggle. A heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

"Dubois skillfully weaves Tolstoy's daughter's tale with the correspondence of a yet-to-be-known shy Indian lawyer, Mahatma Gandhi. Through Gandhi's eyes, the daughter is to learn a valuable lesson in forgiveness."-The New Yorker

"A gem... Entirely original, Her Father's Daughter is a book you set aside like a fine wine and wait for the chance to reopen and savor it."-BookPage

"Historical fiction at its best."-Bustle
