Here is my best explanation:

'reserved' is the definition.
('distant' can be similar in meaning to 'reserved')

'daughter first gets a book' is the wordplay.
'daughter' becomes 'dis' (I've seen this in other clues).
'first' says to put letters next to each other.
'gets a book' becomes 'tant' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'dis'+'tant'='DISTANT'
