A Father’s Daughter is both a journey through grief and the healing of the soul. By adopting an intimate and familiar style of writing, the author uncovers the painful reality behind the loss of a loved one. Nothing could have prepared her for the sudden loss of her father due to the Covid-19 pandemic. By sharing her experience as well as her childhood memories, the author takes the reader by the hand and shows how grief is often followed by regret and anger, especially when facing the loss of someone we consider special and irreplaceable. Nevertheless, recovering is possible although equally painful. It requires a high price to pay and afterwards, as the author suggests, it usually drives you to ask yourself more questions in the attempt to prepare the ones who will, in the future, find themselves in the same situation.
Swastika Juggernath, a sneaker portfolio manager by day at Bata South Africa, possess a PHD in Bus Sc. and is also a mum of two kids with a peculiar sense of humour to stay sane. Named after the originating, ancient, well-wishing Hindu Sanskrit symbol, Swastika can herself be found reading and researching when she is not passionately writing. Swastika’s passion for writing stemmed at an early stage when she enjoyed writing essays and continued even after she escalated her writing through academic levels until her long-life dream of PHD, achieved in 2020. She doesn’t consider herself a famous writer but only an average mum and daughter who has experienced grief and now has decided to share it with the world.

A Father’s Daughter is a fascinating look into the reality of life after a death of a loved one. The way the author expresses herself in this book feels as though she was re-living every special moment she had with her dad.
The book has many captivating life lessons that tackles your spiritual, mental, social, physical and emotional aspects. I could not hold back the tears as I could relate to all those mixed emotions I experienced when I lost my dad. If only I had access to this book prior to my dad’s passing, I would have handled myself so differently. Swastika takes us on her journey where prayer carried her through and the love of her father became her strength.
The most valuable lesson I learnt from this book is that life is so unpredictable, and it hits us when we least expect it. We need to prepare the younger generation so that they will be able to cope with grief better.
This book is a must read especially for those that have experienced any loss in their lives.
