Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Janise N. Smith has published her first novel that brings to light a prevalent social issue affecting many adults as well as children. Statistics have shown that a majority of African American children are raised in a single-parent home, with the mother as the primary caregiver. Numerous studies have examined the negative effects of children raised without having a father in the home such as depression, low self-esteem, promiscuity, and difficulty maintaining long-term relationships.

The main character in Daddys Love wrestles with abandonment issues from her childhood caused by an absentee father. In this novel, Simone travels on a journey from emptiness and resentment to ultimately finding happiness and fulfillment in her life. Her search for answers will make readers think, laugh, cry, and cheer her on as her determination brings her to a place of healing.

Daddys Love is an entertaining and enlightening tale about overcoming obstacles. I’m excited about the message of hope it offers for emotional healing,” says Smith.

The author is able to tackle this difficult issue, and find a silver lining in the novel, by calling upon her own childhood experiences. After her parents divorce, Smith dealt with many of the same emotions that Simones character takes on in this novel. She hopes the book will help other men and women deal with and rise above their own abandonment issues.

She adds, “My novel isn’t just for women missing their fathers. Men can gain a better understanding of the lasting impact their absence has on their children, both male and female.”

Daddys Love is available in softcover and as an e-book on www.ParkerTribePress.com and Amazon.com. The book trailer is also available on YouTube.com.
