My Four Fathers and Eleanor by Autumn Rosen

This is a story of a man with Multiple Personality Disorder, seen through the eyes of his daughter.

It was a bitter sweet tale. It made me laugh out loud in places and it was sad in others. It focussed on the life of this man who shared his head with four other people. It also focussed on the impact his illness had on the people around him. I followed each character closely and by the end it seemed like they were old friends.

It was also a very moving book and I am not ashamed to say I was in floods of tears come the end. For a d├ębut novel this showed much skill on the authors part reeling the reader in and not letting go until the end. I cannot wait to read this authors next novel.
