Amazon.com description: Product Description: From the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Girlfriends comes a poignant celebration of the father-daughter relationship -- an unparalleled tribute to Dad by daughters, and to daughters by Dad.

Most women realize that, for good or ill, their fathers have played unique and potent roles in shaping their lives. When a daughter first meets her father, she makes room in her heart for the first significant man in her life; she becomes Daddy's little girl. As she moves beyond her early role of daughter to become a friend, lover, wife, colleague, or mother, a woman carries with her the enduring imprint of her father's touch. And not only are daughters shaped by their relationships with their fathers, but the fathers themselves are changed, molded, and inspired by their little girls.

In this uplifting collection of real-life interviews, both fathers and daughters share their sacred experiences of this one-of-a-kind bond. The engaging anecdotes involve close-knit father-daughter pairs as well as fathers and daughters who, for reasons of death or estrangement, chose to tell their tales individually. The stories here honor every type of father-daughter relationship, from those that seem made in Daddy-daughter heaven to those in which much hurt and sorrow have been overcome. Daughters speak of their fathers as teachers, disciplinarians, protectors, providers, even pushovers, and fathers talk about how having a daughter brought out their protective, responsible, and loving sides. By turns funny and sad, joyous and moving, Daddies and Daughters is a remarkable tribute to the extraordinary and enduring father-daughter relationship. It promises to become an instant classic for our time.
