About this title


Having grown up in the shadow of her father, a German Methodist minister, Kathryn Adams Doty entered a popular radio talent contest called Gateway to Hollywood while a student at Hamline University. In the final round of competition, she was paired with a young actor named Hugh Beaumont, whom she later married, and she emerged from the shadow of her father to a brief career in motion pictures. Landing roles in movies with stars such as Ginger Rogers, Bing Crosby, Maureen O’Hara, Irene Dunne, and Lionel Barrymore, Kathryn came to understand and appreciate the love of her family and the mystery of life.

About the Author:

Kathryn Adams Doty had a brief career in motion pictures but left acting to marry and raise three children with Hugh Beaumont of Leave It to Beaver fame. She earned a Master's degree in Educational Psychology and had a distinguished career as a psychologist. She is author of the young adult novels Wild Orphan and A Long Year of Silence, the latter of which won the 2005 Midwest Book Award and was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.
