"...This book is amazing. Has had me in tears many times. What a great real life journal of events. So proud of the courage - so sad but inspirational.Thank you soooooo much !!!!! Jim S. 4/26/2016

"A moving story from beginning to end. Learning how to survive as a teen from family separation made the writer a stronger person for what she was to face as an adult, "cancer." Her research with many doctors to identify the gene that her and her siblings had was finally identified as Lynch Syndrome. So many people have been helped by her persistence to get correct diagnosis are alive today. A must read with a happy ending..." 4/23/2016

"The book is a solidly optimistic survivor story, one which is in equal parts interesting, uplifting, and unexpected. One of the more compelling themes of this autobiography, the concept that some people should not pass on their genes for the good of the human species. Many Americans may not be familiar with their country's dangerous flirtation with this famously Nazi-endorsed idea, nor with the fact that it still influences thought in certain sectors of the medical profession..."

 

"Details of family life help to round out the book and generate unique, lively portraits of the people who populate the author's life and family history. The result is intimate and deeply touching. The book bravely delves into emotional family problems frankly and without self-pity. The book also draws a satisfying parallel between the subjects' understandings of their physical and psychological health..."

 

"My Father's Daughter is a fascinating look into a life that is interesting because of far more than just its association with Lynch syndrome. Cancer survivors and those living with Lynch syndrome will find it particularly compelling, as will anyone with careers or family members in law enforcement."

"A story of resilience and resourcefulness while battling cancer and other adversities. Bruzzone’s debut memoir begins with her father’s death in 1997. He’d battled multiple cancers over seven years, and among his final words was a warning: “They think it is hereditary.”

 

"...The key link throughout is Bruzzone’s courage and doggedness while dealing with medical clerks and physicians who failed to consider her family history or worsening symptoms of cancer. “I had never felt more helpless,” she writes about waiting for tests and appointments...but she ably portrays the stress—and sometimes harm—that the medical system caused her. An important account of hereditary cancer..."   Kirkus Reviews

"Bruzzone is ... an entertaining narrator with a matter-of-fact tone and an admirable lack of self-pity... The author is founder of Lynch Syndrome International, a nonprofit devoted to raising awareness, and the book ends with an impassioned plea for genetic testing and vigilant screening for families like hers...My Father’s Daughter could prove lifesaving for those affected by the condition..."  Blue Ink Reviews
