Description

The official sequel to the 1982 hit film, An Officer and a Gentleman‘s Daughter is a brilliant story of struggle and redemption written by Academy Award–nominated screenwriter, Douglas Day Stewart.

Thirty-five years after the events of An Officer and a Gentleman, Zack Mayo finds himself facing a very different kind of struggle. His beloved wife died tragically over a decade ago, his daughter—severely impacted by the death of her mother—disappeared after turning to drugs, and now he is being forced into retirement after a heroic career.

Convinced his daughter had died two years ago in a fire, Mayo is shocked when she shows up as a student in the last class he will teach before retirement. Shannon Mayo must accomplish the impossible if she is to pass her father’s class and prove to herself that she has fully conquered her demons. Jet school is an unforgiving gauntlet for student and teacher, and their own personal journey is fraught with guilt, grief, and secrets that must be faced by both father and daughter before it’s too late.

It’s up to an old mentor to help them navigate their way forward, allowing a daughter to forgive herself for the past and regain her love of life, and a father to prove to himself that he truly is an officer and a gentleman.

How exciting to be granted this ARC which is the sequel to one of the greatest love stories ever! Such an intense, dramatic story with wonderfully developed characters and an evocative military base setting.

He cleverly leaves the door open for another book in the series.

An Officer and a Gentleman's Daughter: A Story of Redemption and Reconciliation** Douglas Day Stewart's "An Officer and a Gentleman's Daughter" is a poignant and compelling tale that delves into the complexities of family, loss, and redemption. As the official sequel to the iconic 1982 film, Stewart's novel offers a captivating glimpse into the lives of Zack Mayo and his estranged daughter, Shannon, decades after the events of the original story. Years after the tragic death of his wife, Zack Mayo faces a crossroads in his life. Forced into retirement from his illustrious military career, he grapples with the guilt and grief that have haunted him. Meanwhile, his daughter, Shannon, has struggled with addiction and the profound impact of her mother's passing. Having disappeared for years, Shannon's unexpected return as a student in her father's final class before retirement sets the stage for a deeply emotional journey of reconciliation. As Shannon strives to prove her recovery and pass her father's rigorous jet school training, secrets and unresolved issues emerge. The unforgiving challenges of jet school become a crucible for both father and daughter, testing their limits and forcing them to confront their past. Guided by the wisdom of an old mentor, they navigate a path fraught with guilt, grief, and long-buried truths. "An Officer and a Gentleman's Daughter" is a masterfully crafted story that explores the transformative power of forgiveness and the enduring bonds of family. With its rich characters, suspenseful plot, and deeply moving themes, Stewart's novel captivates readers from beginning to end, leaving a lasting impression of hope, redemption, and the enduring legacy of love.
