In 2013, actress, television personality, and Sunday Times best-selling author Lynda Bellingham was diagnosed with cancer. Until now, Lynda hasn't spoken publicly about her illness - she has felt strongly that everyone's experience of cancer is so different, and she wanted to keep what she has been going through personal to her while she came to terms with her life now.
But in this memoir, Lynda talks with beautiful poignancy about her life since her diagnosis, her family, and how together they came to terms with a future they hadn't planned. This is a brave and brutally honest memoir, and yet even when talking about these deeply personal experiences, Lynda manages to spread her infectious warmth and humour, bringing light to a very dark time.
Woven into this very moving and brave story are extraordinary, colourful tales of her acting and family life that will enlighten and entertain, as well as the journey that Lynda has taken to find the family of her birth father, having already suffered heartache in her search for her birth mother. In the search for her father's family, Lynda finds a family with a history in entertainment, showing that acting was always in the blood.
Lynda Bellingham is a tremendously gifted storyteller with a rich collection of tales of love, loss, and laughter, and this book brings her kind heart, courage, and emotion to every minute in vivid detail. Lynda's story is an affecting and at times heart-breaking one, but it is so often laugh-out-loud too - and ultimately the way Lynda tells her life story will serve as a great inspiration.

Surprisingly depressing and voyaristic in parts.

a woderful frank account
There is such honesty in this book, l dont think you can take it all in in just 1 reading
Lindas courage in fighting cancer, as a person who has had cancer and so far survived it, l can relate personally to what she went through. How devious is this wicked illness,you think you are recovering only to be smacked down again.
Of course Linda
lt is a wonderful book, full of fun and humour but also full of emotion. l was in bits though during the telling of her love for Mr Spain and her boys and l had to stop to reflect on what l had just litened to.
A heroic journey but a lonely one
