      Lucinda Franks: My Father's Secret War At first, nothing she found among the ruins of his apartment changed what Lucinda Franks knew about her father. There were cigarette butts and coffee stains, and spoiled food on the kitchen counter. There were piles of old newspapers on the floor and weevils in a box of Wheaties. A troubled young man has a series of dreams in which he is a combat soldier in the South African Bush War, where he meets his father at the same age. Getting to know him gives the son insight and compassion, and he is able to let go of life-long feelings of abandonment and anger, which leads to forgiveness and a real-life reconciliation. My Father's War follows the journey of reconciliation /5(5).
