Must read!

I read this book over the father's day weekend. What a beautiful tribute to a father from a daughter. What a lucky girl to have such a wonderful father who loved her so much. This is a great read!

While Jennifer clearly loved her high profile father and went on and on about her elite education and college at Stanford - this book would have been better served if she had majored in literature and possibly writing. Why she needed to mention, several times, that her financial legacy from her father might be lacking because he remarried, I can't figure out. But clearly she intended to add to her financial situation by throwing together what memories she had and slamming them onto paper. I think his memory would have been better served if she had used a ghost writer, the book would certainly have been more interesting and in some kind of coherent order instead of the haphazard ramblings, interspersed with pleasant thoughts and extremely idealized recollections of her father. I'm sure he was a lovely guy, but really, he was just a human being. Not the god she describes. Don't look for any insights or anything new. This is just the way most daughters feel about their dads. Pure fluff.

    Recommend for fans of Cary Grant

    I loved this book becuase it was about the love Cary had for his daughter, Jennifer. It gave me an insight to the movie star I have admired and loved for years.
    Good read if you are a fan of Cary's or want to see how much a dad can love and treasure his daughter.

    Wonderful love story !

    What a gift Cary Grant gave his daughter . . . Showing and telling her how he valued her every thought, action and deed. And to save all her notes and drawings for her . . . Very special.
