This enchanting story is about a little girl who grew up on the rocky shores of the Indian Ocean in South Africa…with a perfect daddy. He was the kind of daddy in whom any child would delight. And this is what she did: sitting on his lap, reading African myths together, whispering together in the night during scary lightning storms, and going on horseback rides together. But their favorite times were spent at the ocean, fishing, swimming, and laughing.
But then…he died.
This true story continues to unfold as we follow her into adulthood. Although she was happily married, the little abandoned girl inside her never had a chance to grow up. Feeling betrayed by her daddy, she tried to be normal, but the indelible memories haunted her day and night. Shame consumed her from the inside out. Condemnation gnawed at her needy heart. She was not fit for life.
Twenty years later, the broken little girl inside a grown woman felt an urge to search for her daddy’s ocean, only this time, it would be the rocky shores of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. As the magical beauty of Cape Breton pierced her heart, freedom found her heart. Amid fireflies and majestic sunsets, she discovered the answer for which her heart was yearning—a new Daddy. And it was during the fatherly embrace of this new Daddy—the Perfect Everlasting Father—that she learned to let go of abandonment, condemnation, rejection, and shame. She was saved by His Love.
This story is not only for those who lost someone and are struggling with abandonment, but also for those who struggle with non-acceptance, unworthiness, condemnation, shame, and guilt.
