At twenty-something, Alice is eager for the milestones of adulthood: leaving home, choosing a career, finding friendship and love on her own terms. But with each step she takes, she feels the sharp tug of invisible threads: the love and worry of her parents, who want more than anything to keep her from harm. Her father fears for her safety to an extraordinary degree - but why?
As she digs further into her father’s story, Alice embarks on a journey of painful discovery: of memories lost and found, of her own fears for the future, of history and how it echoes down the years. Her Father’s Daughter captures a father-daughter relationship in a moving and astonishingly powerful way.

"Pung has an extraordinary story to tell and the finesse to bring it, most movingly, to the page.” (The Monthly)
