The year is 2042, and the long-predicted tipping point has arrived. For the first time in human history, the economic pyramid has flipped: The feeble old now outnumber the vigorous young, and this untenable situation is intensifying a battle between competing cultural agendas. Reporter Julia Davidson-a formerly award-winning journalist seeking to revive a flagging career-is investigating the growing crisis, unaware that her activity makes her a pawn in an ominous conspiracy.

Plagued by nightmares about her absent father, Julia finds herself drawn to the quiet strength of a man she meets at a friend's church. As the engrossing plot of FATHERLESS unfolds, Julia faces choices that pit professional success against personal survival in an increasingly uncertain and dangerous world.

FATHERLESS vividly imagines a future in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition.

A riveting read. Page-turner. Very thought-provoking. A wide range of well-built characters. Intertwined stories of various families illustrated different perspectives on important issues.
There is quite a bit of moral and religious talk in there, so stay away if you are opposed to it. Otherwise, take a read. It just might spark something in you, or help fan the flame that is already burning.
The political aspect was a bit tedious at times, but I understand that since the government plays an important role in all that, it had to be included.

This story is truly frightening. It seems all too possible that this could be the future, if you really think about the way our culture seems to be going. I thought the characters were nicely drawn, but some parts didn't really need to be in there. Because of a couple scenes, I probably would recommend this for 17/18 and up.

An interesting look into our possible future - or even the present!
