Father Figure Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Ann Widdecombe's controversial novel about the position of men in today's society. Jason Kirk is a 32-year-old teacher who believes he is happily married until he returns home one day to find that his wife has left him, taking their two young children with her.

Suddenly Jason finds the role of father denied to him as he is separated from his children and reduced to the role of visitor.

The law is weighted against him and his wife produces a series of excuses to withhold contact with Jake, eight, and Leah, three.

Jason, who had wanted to bring his children up to maturity on a daily basis, not only has to face the pain of this loss but endures the misery of persecution by the Child Support Agency.

He discovers he is not alone and that among his friends and colleagues, there are others enduring the same situation. FATHER FIGURE is an enthralling, thought-provoking novel of modern fatherhood.
