One of the most influential people in a girl's life is her father. Imagine growing up as a little child with an empty void in your heart longing for the love and acceptance of your father. It is unfortunate but many daughters, young and old alike, can identify with the pain of not having a father present in their lives. The absence of fathers in the lives of their daughters has become an epidemic that has plagued our society and affects many families from all walks of life. Daughters that grow up with a healthy father-and-daughter bond are often less likely to become a teenage mother, experience depression, experiment with drugs and alcohol, develop body image problems and engage in criminal activity. Whereas daughters who do have not father in their lives can experience a plethora of problems. This Thing Called Love is about a young girl who shares her story about her life and the various hardships that she experienced as a result of living with a father who is physically present but emotionally absent. Bewildered by his rude comments and his continuous expressions of his disapproval of her, she makes conscious efforts to shine in his eyes. In the pursuit of trying to achieve her father's love, she learns a great deal about God's love. As her relationship with God matures, her newfound faith ignites her determination to win her father over, not just for her personal gain, but for the benefit of the Kingdom of God.
What is this thing called literature? Why should we study it? And how? Relating literature to topics such as dreams, politics, life, death, the ordinary and the uncanny, this beautifully written book establishes a sense of why and how literature is an exciting and rewarding subject to study.
