In the past nine years, I’ve written about Regency spies, politics, family dynamics and fairy-tale heiresses. I’ve written about chimney sweeps, circus performers, pet lions and ruined reputations. What’s left?
In my new “Runaway Brides” trilogy, I wanted to explore the meaning of fatherhood. Mine passed away before I turned eight, so this is a lifelong question for me. Fathers remain a strange and elusive species, so I decided to hunt for some among my heroes.
What makes a good father? Is it instinct? Having a good example? A parenting book left on the back of the toilet? (with pertinent chapters highlighted, of course)
