Daddy Do Right is the story of a baller and shot caller named
John Drake.  He believes he is God’s gift to woman.  In Daddy Do
Right, he’s presented as a meticulous womanizer who vainly
plays games with the woman in his life.  He toys with their
feelings, expectations, and ultimately the most vulnerable
product of many of his fly by night unions, their children.  He
finds out as the story unwinds that the game he’s playing can’t
be won.  He's forced to play a new game, one that jolts him into
realty and forward to what may be his greatest success.  An
interesting point made by this author is what happens to men
when they don’t grow up to face the reality of fatherhood.  Her
story suggests that their growth is somehow stunted just as the
child’s is when they don’t step up and do the right thing.  Her
writing is crisp and seamless and puts the reader into the middle
of the action.  There are some very funny moments and if you’re
a parent you’ll remember when you were where he is.
