His favorite flower was a snapdragon. It was a tall, lovely flowering plant with spikes of flowers, but when pinched slightly, would open and make a face. Dad was like that flower. He was tall and good-looking but snapped like a dragon and scowled more than he smiled, especially at his daughter. In this father-daughter saga of real-life drama, the rubber meets the road, and family relationships are slugged out in the trenches of everyday life. Just as a diamond has many facets, so does this compelling story of a daughter, determined to help her father, regardless of the onslaught of difficulties. As her father was spinning out of control after her mother's death, things became challenging in every aspect of life.
