This is a love letter from a daughter to her father. Nothing more.
It is not a biography of Cary Grant. She even says that she has not read any of the books about her fathers life before she was born. Run from this trash.

I found this book refreshing. It's nice to read a memoir that is filled with love, not a rehashing of old bitter feelings and old feuds that serves no purpose.
It's nice to know that Mr. Grant was a devoted and loving father. I found it interesting that he wished to preserve rememberences of her childhood for her to enjoy at a later period in her life. Good Stuff!

I adore the actor, Cary Grant, so I thought I would enjoy the insight from his daughter, Jennifer. The photographs are nice and the archived letters give you a glimpse that the actor really loved his only child and daughter. Though, keep in mind, this is a grown child's recollection and adoration of her years with her Dad. She touches briefly on other subject matter in re guards to the actors personal life before she was born. Jennifer was born to Cary late in his life, so there are many, many, many years not even discussed. If you truly want to learn more about Cary Grant as a person and actor, this is not the book for you.

I was really looking foward to reading this book from the only child of actor Cary Grant or rather Archibald Leach or "Archie". However the book is basically the following: my daddy loved me, my daddy loved me, my daddy kept a diary of his love for me. Yes very dull, written by someone who does not have a penchant for weaving any sort of intriguing tale. HO HUM!!!
