Not only were finances a problem, so was her father. Even as a young child, Floriana realized that she, her mother and her siblings were living under the thumb of a dangerous, egoistic man who thought only of himself. The author chronicles the details of growing up in a dysfunctional home at a time when people didnt talk about such things. But everyone was talking when Daddy started another family in another town and split his time between the two households. Daddy Was a Bad Boy is more than a portrait of an uncaring father- it is also a detailed account of a courageous mother and her children. The authors story is an inspirational and heartwarming memoir that faithfully portrays a dark time in Americas history with frank, honest prose and a refreshing lack of sentimentalism and nostalgia.
