For me, this book brought back memories. I remember reading about him having a kid when he was in his sixties. I was a kid myself and wondered if he knew what he was letting himself in for. Apparently he knew only too well and he made the time he had with his daughter count. Grant was a superb and doting dad who probably gave more of himself because he was exiting a full time movie career and he realized the importance of what probably really was his greatest work. I also remember hearing that he died suddenly in Iowa. I wondered what recollections his daughter would have to carry her through the years.
This book is crammed with anecdotes that only a daughter could tell. There are tender moments, adventures, mementos, and memories shared that put a new light on Cary Grant. The many pictures in this book speak volumes of the bond they shared and that couldn't be broken by death. While this book may peripherally provide insight into the life of a celebity's child such as dining with royalty and globe hopping, the real message here is what a wonderful and unforgettable parent Cary Grant was.
In fact, I can't keep thinking that you could keep writing. Its been weeks since i read the book and my mind keeps drifting back about how much i just enjoyed the writing style and flow of the book. please do write more! Doesn't have to be about Cary, I really enjoyed the style. I also think u should write a set of children's books! Call it the "good stuff" series maybe starring a boy named archie... between your personal experience as a parent plus all the amazing source material your father left for you. Just updating, translating or sharing the early 19th century childhood memories, songs and poems that Cary taught you could fill series based on what you've shared in this book. I'd be first in line to buy it!
