It's been years since Skye Elliot has seen her biological father. He left when she was twelve, breaking her heart, and her life hasn't exactly been going uphill since. A drug user and alcoholic, Skye is given a choice after a car accident: jail or rehab. It takes eight months to get clean, but the day Skye is released, she has one plan: to be a good mother to her four-year-old daughter, Gracie. But first she has to find her.When no one shows up to pick up Skye from the centre – not her often-married mother who loves plastic surgery more than her granddaughter, not even Rocky, Gracie's dad, a bull rider and the man who introduced Skye to drugs – she gets a surprise visitor: her father, on horseback, with Skye's horse, Lightning, on a lead. Together they set off on a unsettling quest to find Gracie and to forge some kind of relationship that transcends the hurt and anger that has been brewing for almost a decade.'If you haven't discovered Jo-Ann Mapson yet, you're in for the finest of treats – her books will move you from out-loud laughter to bittersweet tears.' – Jodi Picoult

Solomon's Oak, Finding Casey, and now Owen's Daughter have characters from the first novel woven through the other two.
A different story line, additional 'true-to-life' individuals, and the promise of 'more to come' make Owen's Daughter another winner for Jo-Ann Mapson.

Jo-Ann Mapson know how to pull together characters and make a good story. Dolores is a kind of narrator for this story set in New Mexico. In Spanish, Dolores means "sorrow", and that is what draws Dolores to the people in this neighbourhood in Santa Fe. She plays a part in how some things happen. Adult children and parents are brought together again, to build better relationships (or not?). Skye is the main character and her relationships with all the others are complex, funny, sad, healing. I was totally caught up in the story and stayed up late to finish it.
