What an endearing memoir! Tortorello shares her memories of her hero, her grandfather. If every child had a relationship as the one described between the pages of My Hero, My Ding, this world would be a much better place. Very enjoyable read!

WHAT A GEM OF A BOOK. AFTER READING THIS LOVELY STORY OF THE SPECIAL BOND BETWEEN GRAND-DAUGHTER AND GRANDFATHER IT MADE ME SMILE AND FEEL REALLY GOOD. HOW FRESHING TO READ THIS AS MOST BOOKS THESE DAYS WRITE ALL ABOUT THE TROUBLES THEY HAVE IN THEIR LIVES. THIS WAS THE OPPOSITE, WRITTEN IN SUCH A POSITIVE AND UPLIFITNG WAY. MADE ME WISH I HAD A RELATIONSHIP JUST LIKE THIS. HOW LUCKY YOU WERE. REMEMBER TO PASS THIS MAGIC ON. WELL DONE TO THE AUTHOR A FIRST NOVEL AND LETS HOPE THERE ARE GOING TO BE PLENTY MORE.

YOUR DING WOULD BE SO PROUD OF YOU.

"My Hero, My Ding" by Lisa A. Tortorello, a memoir of a Girl and her Grandfather. In this heartwarming, endearing and life-touching story this Author shares her most treasured memories - times with her Grandfather. Although he became a jewelry maker and jewelry store owner, he gave her a rare gem, time and love, more precious than any of the jewels he had made. She found a rare treasure in their relationship - a treasure that would last a lifetime. These cherished memories etched a portrait in her life of not just a grandfather, but a hero. He left behind for her a treasure worth far more than gold. This book will touch your heart and reflect to other families to not let disagreements weigh you down, but perhaps be lifted by the spirit of love, that we can all possibly be the "hero" in the lives of those we love.

I just finished your book & Lisa I LOVED it.

It was endearing, heartwarming and beautifully written.

It left me with the feeling that Grandpa knew, that in you, he had a sparkling personality

as shiny as any precious stone in his store and that you at an early age realized that

He was the most precious and glorious jewel---& He was YOURS.

God Bless You Lisa, I hope every grandparent reads this.

Check out beautiful memories written from a heart of love

Lisa Tortorello has written her personal memories of a family member.   

This is not like the stories that we have read so many times of the horrific heartaches a child has endured because of a family member.

This wonderful story is about a grandfather, who lived and loved the way God intended grandpa’s to be; sensitive, loving, and with a wonderful sense of humor.

I truly enjoyed Lisa’s thoughtful and funny side as she shared with us, a time in her life that was filled with loving memories of a wonderful man that just happens to be her grandfather.

Funny Title...Wonderful Stories

My Hero, My Ding by Lisa A. Tortorello…might be a funny name, but the story is a sweet, endearing walk down memory lane. This is a collection of stories about a girl and her grandfather and the fun and special bond they shared. Lisa brings her memories to life and lets you enjoy the love, camaraderie and zaniness she shared with her grandfather. The Dings share a special bond that made sense only to them, and that’s exactly how they liked it. I encourage anyone that had a special bond with a grandparent, aunt, uncle…to pick up a copy of My Hero, My Ding. Not only will you find Lisa’s story genuine but it just might bring back fond memories of your own life…Plus, you’ll get to find out what a Ding is…

A Must Read for Everyone!

I really enjoyed My Hero, My Ding by Lisa Tortorello. This story about a grandfather and his granddaughter, is endearing and delightful and brings you into their lives, as if you were one of the family. It made me wish I was part of the Ding Dong Club. If only I could have had a relationship with one of my grandparents, like Lisa had with her grandpa (Ding). I highly recommend this story. It was very uplifting, inspirational and funny.
