Doris Day first caught the world’s attention during the Second World War with the song, Sentimental Journey in 1945, her first No 1 chart hit. She captured the mood of the time, including that of a young US Navy aircraft mechanic heading for the Philippines named Roy Harold Fitzgerald, later to become her most famous co-star Rock Hudson.

Considering Doris Day" looks at the remarkable film career and the astounding popularity Miss Day achieved, topping the polls year after year and turning a profit with almost every title. In the recording field she was, for a while, the "Queen of Columbia", turning out Gold Record after Gold Record and making even some titles that defy description seem enjoyable.

Mary Anne Barothy was first an enthusiastic fan, then the personal secretary of Doris Day in the 1970 when key events were happening in the famous star’s life. The only person to live in the Day household except for relatives and helpers, she witnessed, and has written about, Doris’s son Terry, the death of Doris’s husband Marty Melcher, the TV series and movies, celebrity friends and dates, and many personal stories which show Doris Day almost the same as the roles she played on screen: a charming and decent friend from mid-America.

Ms. Barothy was given the dream of her lifetime - the opportunity to personally connect with her idol, Doris Day. Her hope of meeting Day went from cruising by the star's Beverly Hills home in the hope of catching a glimpse of her, to being part of a group of young girls who would meet her at a local bakery to becoming Day's personal secretary and temporarily joining her household. Perhaps it's because I'm a Doris Day fan myself, but I'm glad Barothy didn't publish a trashy tell-all. She treats her former employer with love, care and respect. Day at a Time exceeded my expectations and "It's Magic" for Doris Kappelhoff's fans.

I first became interested in this book because Mary Ann actually knew Doris Day, and was her personal secretary/assistant for four years. I found it to be a wonderful account of her life with Doris.

Most books about Doris Day's life come in two catagories:
A parapharing of her excellent book, "Doris Day: Her Own Story" or a book full of rumours and trash to excite the reader. This book is different from all of the others. It is a fresh personal account of Doris Day from the the time Mary Ann met her in 1967, until the end of her employment as Doris Day's live-in personal assistant.

Barothy portrays Doris as a warm, kind, funny person. I would say it is a loving, but honest trubute to the star. It discusses friends including Billy De Wolfe, Doris' love of dogs and Doris' wonderful relationship with her son. It cover many things that you take for granted about a star's life.

I know that people from one of the Doris Day forums came to Amazon, and wrote negetive reviews before the book was even out in print. After reading their reviews, I doubt they even read this book, or at least not the one that was published. Some objected to the reference of an affair years after Marty died. This was in Doris' book and Maryann doesn't mention his name. The other objection was the mention of a face lift when Doris is older. (big deal) This book actually addresses some myths about Doris and disclaims them. (Me, personally I'm more worried about the Kaufman and the Brett book).

I think the only thing that was a little bit fuzzy was the ending. Maryann starts to say things about Doris and doesn't really explain why was she fired. It sound like it was a misunderstanding, but maybe Mary Ann wanted to protect herself.

I recommend this book to any Doris fan that is willing to take a realistic view of her life.

The book gets two stars because of technical problems, as in poor editing, and very poor writing. The author was totally disorganized in her thought processes especially from the middle to the end.

That being said, I wouldn't vilify the author for having written the book. There's a lesson to be learned here, which is, all fan clubs should be done away with. People are too prone to get obsessed with celebrities. Consequently, they bury their own self seeking to emulate what they perceive is the perfect life. This is what happened to the author. She got so enamoured of Ms Day, she completely lost her identity. She gave up a serious relationship, and dumped her family when she moved halfway across the country in search of a dream. A very unhealthy dream as it turned out.

I think Ms Day finally realized the woman needed to get a life of her own, and fired her. Sort of a tough love move on her part, but it was the right thing to do in my opinion. On the other hand, I also think Ms Day took advantage of the author's kindness and infatuation with her to some degree. So, there were co-dependency issues going on there as well.

Frankly, as much as I admire Ms Day, you will never find me in her house cleaning up after eleven dogs on a day to day basis. You couldn't pay me enough money to do that. And I love dogs.

So if you buy this book, learn from it if you're inclined to overly obsess about a celebrity. They are no more important than you are in the grand scheme of things. And they are no less fallible in making decisions that impact their lives in a very negative way. In other words, the grass is not greener on the other side of the septic tank.

At any rate, I do believe the author wrote without malice, and really wanted to convey the fact that Ms Day is at heart, a lovely, caring woman despite the adversity in her life. For me, the author succeeded in doing that.

This is a very delightful read if you're a fan of Doris Day. The author was/is a die-hard Doris Day fan who ended up becoming her personal secretary while Doris was working on The Doris Day Show. Some of the stories are very humorous. My favorite is when Doris and Mary Anne, her secretary, were visiting Doris' son Terry who was in the hospital and Doris disliked how some plants/flowers weren't being watered outside. They both ended up making a big wet mess when they couldn't get the water to stop outside after breaking the knob! I recommend for any Doris fan.
