From the Back Cover
It takes a lifetime to know what--and who--defines you.
When Alexandra Kuykendall became a mother, she knew she had to go back to the beginning. To that hot July afternoon in Barcelona when she met her father for the first time. The only daughter of a single, world-traveling mother and an absent artist father, Alexandra embarks on a soul-searching trip into the past to make sense of the layers of her life--both the memories she experienced and the ones she wished for.
The Artist's Daughter will take you on a journey of discovery through childhood, marriage, and motherhood. Through short vignettes full of both wonder and heartache, Alexandra seeks answers to three life-defining questions: Am I lovable? Am I loved? Am I loving? If you long to better understand the path your life has taken, where it is heading, and who is guiding you, this revealing and refreshing story will push you toward those answers as it changes your heart.

What this book is not... it is not a 'ten steps to fulfillment' book. I personally can't stand those kinds of books. Instead its basically a collection of stories and important moments in the author's life as she shares herself with you; the highs and lows, the good and the bad. And while you read it, you realize you're not the only one thinking and feeling the crazy spectrum of emotions that come with life.
It is an easy, enjoyable, and thought provoking read that ultimately will leave you encouraged and perhaps a little more centered :)
