DADDY'S GIRL is Charlotte Vale Allen's story - it is her autobiography. What makes this book important, is that it is NOT just any story. It is a story of incest and of one person's brave ordeal in telling it to the public.
DADDY'S GIRL is Charlotte Vale Allen's story - it is her autobiography. Ms Allen grew up in a family that seemed to thrive on lies. And the biggest lies that surrounded the family were the problems they had with Daddy. He was abusive to all of them: he constantly yelled at her mother; he tried often to physically hurt her.
Charlotte Vale Allen--an author I’d not read before, but will seek out more of her books--paints a story of the horrors that domestic violence creates, not only in the lives of those going through it, but those around them. Her characters are complex, the story moves along, told in different characters’ points of view, and the conclusion is satisfying. Highly recomm I bought this book ages ago, either at a library sale or a used bookstore. Finally decided to read it and could hardly put it down.

Charlotte Vale-Allen On Writing. Often, with my novels, I am not at all happy when I reread them. I think that as an author I have little, if any, objectivity about my work once it's completed and so am not necessarily a good judge of it. But I am proud of DADDY'S GIRL. Since its publication in 1980 it has been of help to a lot of people.

Allen got married, had a little girl, was amicably divorced; but none of this is shown, simply told. The manuscript, we're informed, was incubating for nine years until Allen's agent felt she was ""ready"" to tackle it; possibly it should have waited somewhat longer. From the time she was seven until the age of 17, Canadian Charlotte Vale Allen spent two evenings a week-mom's card-playing nights-placating her easily enraged father by performing sexual favors for him. For this she received money, though she stresses that her main objective was to mollify him and preserve the family peace.
