'Dear Cary'

Dyan Cannon's memoir describes life with Cary Grant, and encourages others to heal and find love again

Dyan Cannon was a young actress just starting her career when she received a note from one of the most famous men in Hollywood saying he was interested in meeting her. It was then that she did the unbelievable; she refused to meet Cary Grant. They did finally meet and after a certain amount of pursuing by Grant, they got married. It was a stormy relationship at best, but writing her memoir, Dear Cary, helped her heal and forgive many past hurts from the relationship. Cannon also believes it taught her how to love again.
