For nearly two decades the Forest MOBI #245 since the publication of her iconic first novel The Good Mother Sue Miller has distinguished herself as one of our most elegant and widely celebrated chroniclers of family life with a singular gift for laying bare the interior lives of her characters In each of her novels Miller has written with exuisite precision about the experience of grace in daily lifethe sudden epiphanic recognition Lost in PDF or of the extraordinary amid the ordinaryas well as the sharp and unexpected motions of the human heart away from it toward an unruly netherworld of upheaval and desire But never before have Millers powers been keener ortransfixing than they are in Lost in the. Regarding Mark's discovery of his 15 yr old daughter's relationship with a 53 year old manYes the relationship is repulsive and hard to read about We are forced to open our eyes to something that we know as a society does happen many atrractive young girls do become the objects of older mens' fantasies and sexual attentions We know wihtout even thiking about it that the typical response would be that most fathers blow up and reject their daughters in response to having knowledge of such actsAlthough Miller makes Mark's response different it is not unrealistic in the context of the rest of the storyline Mark's response is inextricably linked to his ongoing relationship with Eva As both Emily and Daisy state toward the end of the book the children's lives were shapedmarred by their exclusion from the intimacy that their parents shared Because Mark still loved her his first instincts would have been to protect EVA from the knowledge of what happened to their daughter He knew fully that with all Eva had lost and suffered that this would crush herFortunately for Daisy over the years Mark had come to realize his culpability in being an absent father while married his replacement by John in both Eva's and Daisy's hearts and even after the loss of his replacement through the death of Daisy's step father Daisy would not continue to be lost to him however; she called out to him by crying in the night a few days later he heard her cry in a different way and came to her aid becoming the father she desperately wanted and neededYoung girls like Daisy do reach out to olderother men when their fathers are absent or have died The men they find available to them may have other objectives yet seem to fill a void and shape too many young girls lives I think Sue Miller successfully addressed a very thorny subject on so many levels that a second reading would intensify an understanding of the strength of her words and message to us as a society
