Daddies and Daughters

From the bestselling coauthor of Girlfriends comes a poignant celebration of the bond between women and the first men in their lives -- their fathers.
Told in the voices of ordinary people, the stories in Daddies and Daughters take you through a lifetime of experiences, from a father's exultant "It's a girl" to a daughter's eloquent thoughts on the legacy of her father's love. Daughters talk about their fathers as teachers, disciplinarians, protectors, providers, and unfailingly vulnerable pushovers. Fathers reveal how their daughters brought out their protective, responsible, and loving sides and remember both the fears and the pride they felt as their little girls became independent women. By turns funny and sad, joyous and moving, Daddies and Daughters is a remarkable tribute to the extraordinary and enduring father-daughter relationship.
