Popular Books My Daughter's Army My Daughter’s Army is a thoroughly gripping, moving, and highly accessible story of a father’s struggle to save his daughter as she tries to save the women of the world. The novel tracks the life of Sera Goodwin through the eyes of Adam, her adoptive father: from her childhood (including an especially emotional chapter of her experience on 9/11), to her teenage years as a popular blogger for issues facing young women, to her extraordinary efforts after college to motivate her online followers around the world (the “army” of the title) to confront some of the worst issues women can face, from sex trafficking to honor killings to female genital mutilation. But she’s guarding a secret that she shares only with her father: she believes she is the Daughter of God, a female messiah sent to liberate women from oppression. Adam has to balance his love for his daughter and support for her cause with his concern and fear for her mental stability.The story weaves in veiled allusions to biblical themes, but you don’t have to be a biblical scholar to understand them. They’re just enough to give you reason to legitimately wonder whether Sera’s claims just might be true. And a female messiah, if there were one, definitely would focus on women’s rights, and the author has done a terrific job of raising awareness of these issues, but in a way that isn’t lecturing. Instead, women of all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities get to tell their stories themselves, in their own voices. The book describes male oppressors without caricaturing all men as the bad guys – particularly since the main character is a father looking out for and being supportive of his daughter. And though Adam is gay, his sexuality is almost incidental. The book makes the point about the religious perceptions of gay people without that being the focus. Instead, Adam represents the universal desire to protect his child that all parents feel. And the question of Sera’s mental stability that drives Adam’s concern is presented with subtlety and nuance rather than as a raving lunatic. And it’s that nuance that leaves just enough room for the reader to determine for yourself whether Sera is delusional or whether she really might be sent from above to save the women of the world.If pressed to find fault, I might say that the book spends a lot of time (about half the book) laying out Sera’s upbringing and development into a young woman before you get to the heart of the action. But in fairness, the early chapters build a believable background for her accomplishments and explain what influences and experiences might inspire and guide a modern messiah.
