Ms. Burnett gives a very thoughtful and detailed account of her show business career and how it intertwined with her life as a devoted mother and friend. Her accounts with Lucille Ball were particularly interesting. I feel she is a great role model in balancing motherhood and career. Her sincerity is felt throughout the book and while listening, it seemed like she was in the room with me.
I found this book to be an eye opener in as much as I promised myself not to forget what it was like to be a teenager. Unfortunately the world has changed so much since then, that the stresses on teens as grown considerably beyond my own memories.
All of these improvements in our and their lives have come at a price. This book addresses the new problems as well as the old ones.
Nicely told story, spoken with true passion of a life lived with much success but an equal amount of tragedy.
