Peggy Hattendorf "Son of My Father-A Family Dynasty, is Peggy Hattendorf's first novel. The story introduces Christiana as a substitute for a son her father never had. The corporate world and family world in which Christiana is a major part takes us from New York to Hollywood, CA to Florida and throughout Europe. The story moves quickly and the characters, fully developed , are an integral part of the story. Peggy's background and experience in the travel industry and family life make this book all the more realistic. The intrigue and entanglements of the characters make this a must read. The ending is such a surprise, to the delight of many. A sequel would be a story to look forward to as this first novel is an interesting and satisfying read.
