Synopsis

A healthy and continuous father-daughter relationship can set a strong foundation in a woman's romantic life. But when this relationship is nonexistent or interrupted prematurely for whatever reason, a dysfunction like none other can occur in a young woman’s life.

Research demonstrates that girls and young women who have unstable or absent father figures are more prone to unwanted pregnancy, high school and college dropout, low self-esteem, poverty, divorce, and promiscuous behavior.

Unbecome her explores the emotional turmoil fatherless daughters experience in their intimate relationships (often referred to as ‘Daddy issues’), through my personal story as a 30-year-old woman whose father brutally passed when I was only eleven years old.

Born and raised in Cameroon, I was left with 3 siblings and a single mother who worked extremely hard to make ends meet, in a patriarchal culture where widows are amongst the most vulnerable groups of society. The years following my father's death radically shaped my perception of myself as a young woman, and inevitably opened my eyes to the complex dynamics of the relationship between men and women. After receiving my high school diploma at 16, I was sent to France by my mother to pursue my studies in a private
school.

This is when the trouble began.

I navigated life in this new environment trying to find ways to cope with my loss, and began to fill the void my father’s absence had left by looking for love in all the wrong places. From dysfunctional relationships, emotional and sexual abuse, low self-worth to depression and chronic illness, I put myself through a never-ending cycle of emotional pain and self-destructive behavior. Ten years later, after hitting rock bottom, reality inevitably caught up. My emotional wounds, insecurities, thought patterns and unhealthy coping mechanisms had gradually turned me into someone I was not.

As I started going deeper into my self-exploration journey, I came to the daunting realization that my inability to see my worth, build confidence, set strong boundaries in my relationships, and ultimately make healthy decisions for myself were all symptoms of losing my father at a young age. Deep down, I felt unworthy to receive love and unable to trust men; as if a part of me subconsciously believed that the most important men in my life would eventually leave... just like my father. Like most women who grow up with so-called ‘daddy issues’, I realized that my perception of men and intimate relationships was completely distorted based on this single life event.

This powerful epiphany marked the beginning of a transformational journey that took me from brokenness to wholeness; from victimhood to radical empowerment; from fear and anger to love and forgiveness. I finally came to see that the love and validation I was so desperately seeking in my relationships with men was, and had always been, waiting to emerge inside of me.

During this journey back to myself, I went through seven important milestones, which I believe are crucial for fatherless women to heal those silent wounds:
- Unlearning: everything I thought I knew about love
- Forgiving: Myself and others
- Reclaiming: My worth in relationships and my feminine energy
- Releasing: Toxic behaviors, relationships, and thought patterns
- Healing: My physical and emotional bodies through a holistic approach
- Breaking: The cycle of trauma and raising my daughters from a place of wholeness
- Becoming: the radiant and purpose-driven woman I always knew I was meant to be.

Unbecome Her is both a memoir and a guide that teaches women how they, too, can heal their father wound and find their way back to their truest, most authentic selves.

Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.
