At the beginning of Ashley C. Ford’s blistering memoir, the author learns that her father is being released from prison, where he’s been for almost 30 years. Ford has never known life with her father in it—she was a baby when he was incarcerated, and she only found out the devastating reason for his imprisonment when she was a teenager. In Somebody’s Daughter, Ford catapults us back to her turbulent coming-of-age, marked by her mother’s anger, her longing for the father she never knew and the shattering discovery of why he was in prison. With a sympathetic hand, Ford dissects her fractured family and her place in it, unraveling a complex web of emotions.
