Title: Here Lies The Father Author: Mckenzie Cassidy Publishing: January 5th 2021 by Kaylie Jones Books GOODREADS SUMMARY: When Ian Daly and his sister Catherine arrive for their wayward father’s funeral in his small and desolate Upstate New York hometown, a secret that was kept from them their entire lives emerges: their father Thomas abandoned two other families, leaving behind two furious wives and several children who never knew their father. For as long as Ian can remember, his own family has covered up for Thomas’s alcoholism and bipolar disorder. Now, Ian wants to know the truth, but is met with resistance from his own sister and their mother, who want to preserve the carefully constructed myth they’ve created around who Thomas really was. In the cold, lonely winter landscape of small-town New York, fifteen-year-old Ian sets out alone to learn the truth about his father’s past and the families he left behind. Here Lies a Father examines the long-term effects shameful secrets have on a family, and how difficult it is for a young man to reconstruct his own sense of right and wrong when every value and moral principle he was ever taught was based on a lie.
