1 Kornegay, Demitri Dear Rhonda: Life Lessons from a Father to His Daughter
0375508422 / 9780375508424; Demitri Kornegay has served as a police officer for almost two decades. Because of the nature of his profession, he knew that he could be killed in the line of duty at any time. And this knowledge forced him to wonder how he could ever properly convey to his daughter, Rhonda, all of the fatherly advice that he had accumalted over the years. So Demitri started writing letters to her. With each letter, he tackled a difficult subject and ended up touching on everything from love and relationships to death and race relations, always encouraging his daughter to use his words as a springboard to develop her own life philosophies; even though they were written to his daughter, they can be read and appreciated by anyone. This collection of fatherly wisdom provides the kind of sound advice that anyone, young or old, can learn from. There is even room at the end for you to write a letter to someone you love to give as a gift. 95 pages. The binding is pumpkin colored with gold lettering. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

Seven Daughters, Lieferant, Henry and Sylvia
2 Lieferant, Henry and Sylvia Seven Daughters
A poignant story of the Lieferant family, in which their father wanted a son and instead had seven daughters. Their large farm was self-sufficient that prospered under Joe's excellent management outdoors and Sabina's indoors. To the extent that he wanted boys, he tended to revolt against the girls. He believed that if he became reconciled to being the father to all daughters, the Lord might think him content to get along without a son. At a critical moment for the whole family though, the answer comes, simple and shocking, in a tragedy that eventually brings triumph. The jacket has small chips along the bottom back and top spine; the back top and bottom have short but wide folds that shows white. Rubbing along the folds. The jacket is in a protective cover. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
