Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

A shallow celebration of fathers and daughters. Berry (co-author of the bestselling Girlfriends: Invisible Bonds, Enduring Ties) and Barrington, a record producer, interviewed themselves and dozens of daughters and fathers to collect the stories of attachment that appear in this book. The anecdotes seem to have been published almost exactly as they tumbled out of the tape recorder. Occasional contributions have the self-consciously florid voice of a novice in a creative writing class. The book is organized in roughly chronological order, from birth (of the daughters) to death (of the fathers). The first section, winningly titled ``It's a Girl,'' asks fathers to recount their experiences with pregnancy, birth, and bonding with their new babies. One father lovingly carried the baby's sonogram picture with him for months before she was born; another's attachment to his daughter deepened, more earthily, when she had her first bowel movement. The second section is devoted to the maturation process of girls growing up and in the course of it learning from their fathers. Section three concerns fathers and adult daughters; the last section deals with fathers' regrets, reconciliations, illnesses, and deaths. Each chapter is preceded by quotations from famous daughters, including Colette, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Marie Osmond. There are chapters on dads and pets, dads and cars, dads and dates, and a singularly unamusing one titled ``He could always make me laugh.'' (Clearly, you had to be there.) Not all of the fathers featured here wear halosabusive and absent fathers are also included on the rosterbut for the most part, the stories reach happy endings. A concluding section lets some of the daughters, including the authors, sum up each father's impact on their lives. Typically, the women praise their fathers for encouraging them to fulfill their dreams. Mostly triteand unworthy of the fathers supposedly honored.

Review

Duane Noriyaki Los Angeles Times Fathers and daughters will find many of their own thoughts reflected in this book.

Chicago Tribune Moving....Interviews with scores of fathers and daughters make this book more than just a collection of clichés.

This is a wonderful book. It was fascinating, and I could not stop reading it. It made me remember events in my childhood that I had long forgotten. I almost didn't read it because of the Kirkus review, which is wrong. I would like to thank the authors for creating such a touching collection.

As a new father of a beautiful baby girl, I awaited delivery of this book with a great deal of anticipation. As soon as it arrived, I put aside the paperback I had been working on. Too bad for me. This book starts out promisingly enough. The first section (dealing with birth and early childhood) is kind of neat. But, as the book progresses (through the school years and adulthood), I found myself becoming more and more discouraged. The mostly dysfunctional father/daughter relationships did nothing for me. In fact, several of the anecdotes really disturbed me. The book becomes more of a downer with each page. I ultimately set it aside and did not finish it. To the authors - nice try, but, in my opinion, you did not do what you set out to do. Instead of touching stories of the unique bond between fathers and daughters, you presented a series of Inside Edition-like stories. I don't see the point.

What an enjoyable read for any daddy or daughter! I didn't have a great relationship with my dad and learned so much from this book. It's helped me to forgive and reconcile with him, as I understood we all make mistakes. My dad and I thank you authors for helping us get past the past!
