Clare O'Beara We have made this kind of list in the past and been astonished how few there are of Somebody's Son.

It's crazy there are enough Somebody's Daughter books to fill multiple lists, but only 9 Somebody's Son books on that list!

Clare O'Beara Might reflect the expected readers. Anyway it's good to tell the stories of women throughout history.

Definitely agree on both points. The pessimistic part of me, though, suspects it's also because men are considered significant enough on their own to have books in their own names/title/professions (made-up example: The Doctor instead of The Doctor's Daughter).


message 6: by Clare (new)

Clare O'Beara Were considered. The title denotes a social history novel, not a present day one in almost all cases.

Still considered. The majority of these types of books are not set in the past, and even if they were this The ____'s Daughter nonsense reflects an ongoing, current issue where woman are valued less than men. Even if it's a period piece, if you want tell our stories, say our names.

Clare O'Beara I'm not disputing the value aspect, Angel, but in almost all of these books I have read, the story is set pre World War 2 and most are pre World War 1.
Looking through the new additions I see ones like The Wedding Planner's Daughter which are clearly more modern. If we don't like it we don't have to buy it.
