The inspiring, heart-rending story of a father's unwavering love for his son. David Goldman and his Brazilian wife, Bruna Bianchi, led what appeared to be a happy life in New Jersey. But in June 2004, Bianchi took their four-year-old son, Sean, to Brazil for what she said would be a two- week vacation. Once there, she informed Goldman that she was staying in Brazil-and keeping Sean, setting in motion an international controversy that would eventually reach the highest levels of the U.S. and Brazilian governments. It would be almost five years before David saw Sean again. What kept David Goldman going when everything looked so hopeless? In A Father's Love, Goldman recounts his extraordinary battle, despite overwhelming odds, to bring his abducted son back home. It is a riveting story full of peculiar ironies, unfathomable elements, threats, and legal twists and turns. Goldman describes in detail the wrenching emotions he went through and how he relentlessly rallied support behind the scenes from both high-level U.S. government officials and national media organizations. Father and son were finally reunited in December 2009, and Goldman writes about the challenges he is now facing as he works to rebuild his relationship with his son, and the advocacy work he is doing on behalf of other children in similar circumstances. Goldman's unusual story movingly celebrates an ordinary man's incredible love for and loyalty to his son, and his ability to overcome the unimaginable to keep them together. It is a testament to how connected any father and son can be.

A Father's Love is an autobiographical novel about childhood suffering and endurance. The story opens in 1951, when Leah, age six, a child of Holocaust survivors, arrives with her family in New York from Displaced Person's Camps in Germany. What follows is a classic tale of immigrant struggle and success, as well as its antithesis: family dysfunction and child sexual abuse. Unable to comprehend or process her father's molestation and nighttime sexual attacks, Leah becomes increasingly fearful and dissociated. She begins to live a dual existence. At school she learns English, excels in her studies and adapts to her American environment. At home, where the traumas and losses of war remain her parents' daily reality, life is chaotic and sometimes violent. While Leah absorbs her family's suffering, she must also silently cope with the mysterious assaults of an "unknown" assailant. As she strives for insight and comprehension, she begins to view her parents with a dispassionate eye, and is thus well on her way to forging her own identity.

It begins with a grandfather taking his beloved granddaughter to see an ROTC demonstration on an Army base, but rapidly escalates until it involves The Special Projects Command, the Pentagon, Israel, six Arab nations, the White House and most of all an all powerful, all knowing, incomprehensible, all loving God.

Meet a young woman who takes a period of time to reflect upon her own painfully raw childhood experience.

Lavita is a mother who adores her children and pours her love and energy into creating a nurturing environment for each one of them. In fact, it is through her children that she learns that she has yet to move beyond her yearning for a Father who never fully acknowledged her. Despite the fact that God placed individuals in her life to act in a surrogate role, including a compassionate husband, she yet hurts. This is her story, it may also be your story, and from a broader perspective it is a tragic human story. But tragedy is only the first half because on the other side of pain exists the possibility of redemption. Beyond the statistics, beyond the cold facts, there is a lesson learned about the importance of Fatherhood, of taking responsibility. There is much to be learned about the dynamic and life changing power of, A Father's Love.

There are evil men in this world. Men who would like nothing more than to separate us. But we need each other too much. Don't worry, Cole—I will always keep you with me. Cole remembers these words as the kindest his father has ever spoken to him. In the almost thirteen years of Cole's life, his father has constantly scolded, mocked, and ignored him. But no matter how harshly he is treated, Cole knows that deep down his father needs him and will always protect him. When mysterious soldiers attempt to kidnap Cole, he must flee his home and find a way to survive without his father's protection. Alone and frightened, Cole travels through lands he only knows from childhood stories and legends—lands of ancient kingdoms, mysterious rivers, and majestic waterfalls. Soldiers pursue Cole on a twisting journey that leads him to encounters with hermits, waterwolves, flying beasts, and enormous one-eyed trolls. After learning surprising truths about himself, his family, and his father, Cole no longer knows where he's running or what he's running from. But he finally understands why his father needs him so desperately and what he must do to win the one thing he has always longed for: A Father's Love.
