       BLOOD FATHER - PETER CRAIG

Lydia Jane; Link and Ursula; Lydia and Jonah; Link and Lydia; Lydia and Ursula, titles to the different parts of the book each representing a different phase in the lives of a mother, father and daughter.

John Link is a former Hell's Angel who's past experiences includes drugs, alcohol and imprisonment. He now has a sponsor, is trying to run a tattoo parlor, attend meetings and stay out of trouble.

Ursula is the mother of Link's daughter Lydia. Ursula moved swiftly ahead with her life after Lydia's birth. Ursula's goals and ambitions did not include an ex-con and she doesn't show a lot of enthusiasm for a confused daughter. She married more than once and tried to take care of Lydia in her own way but Lydia soon decided to run away.

Lydia hooks up with Jonah and that is her real downfall. She winds up in more trouble than anyone can imagine. Her last hope is to contact her father.

Link comes to Lydia's rescue and tries his best to protect her and get her headed back towards a straight life with a good future.

This book is violent, sad and funny all at the same time. Your heart goes out to both Link and Lydia as they try to find their way back to a father-daughter relationship. I think this is a wonderful book and would highly recommend it
