|When child molestation occurs within families there is always a myriad of excuses used by the predator. There is never any excuse, and the consequences are always catastrophic. This is the story of ‘Daddy’s Girl’ told by African American author Linda D. Wattley.
Dakota Wind from Rolling Seas Reviews had this to say about the story:
“ ‘You better pull over and let me drive before I tell you what’s up.’
In the name of love … or in the name of sex … the author Linda D. Wattley unfolds the story of a father who betrayed his daughter in the worst possible way—through child molestation.
Bruce Tillard had his family to protect him—a mother who sheltered her son no matter what injustices he served to those he proclaimed he loved. Bruce believed he was above the law, above the moral responsibility of his faith, above reproach.
Brenda gave Bruce Tillard but a passing glance. Sure, he was handsome, but she already had a son, Mark, she did not need ‘no smooth talking man’ who drove a red and white convertible and whistled or blew the horn at girls as they sashayed by.
‘Daddy’s Girl’ was born during a night of violence that would change lives forever.
Leona Tillard was to became ‘Daddy’s Girl’ in every way imaginable. All she could do was go to sleep to escape. But, it was not only Leona that Bruce wanted to make feel good. Priscilla and Sarah would also fall victim to the predator.
‘Oh, My God!’ are words not only read through Linda D. Wattley’s story, but frequently provoked in the mind. When the clock is ticking it is only a matter of time before the bomb explodes, destroying the lives of innocent children.
‘Daddy’s Girl’ evokes a myriad of emotions leaving the reader wondering if beauty of body should not be bestowed up those more deserving of its compelling charms. A story that wrenches at the heart!”
Published by Angel Press Publishing USA, ‘Daddy’s Girl’ is all too real for children who are molested by predators who profess to love them. The author, Linda D. Wattley, speaks from experience, bringing heart and soul to the storytelling. She is the molested child who sought understanding of God… understanding of life.
