    Giveaway Winner-This is an engrossing story of a two women looking for something. There is the story of the mother who was searching for her past life and glories. There is also a story of her daughter searching for her mother. Both stories are filled with triumphs and tragedies. It is easy to get caught up in the story of the friendship between Carolyn and Grace but the true story is the author's relationship with her mother. The relationship between mother and daughter is what keeps the story [...]

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher through giveaway for my honest opinion. I did enjoy this tragic story which I struggled to get through. I understand that formatting issues will be fixed before publishing. For me, the formatted version I received was so out of whack, it was hard to keep the story straight in my head. I think there is a great book here but if the formatting issue is not fixed along with some story gaps this book will be moved to the discount rac [...]

    I was a First Read Winner of this book, the title really caught my eye and I was curious what might have happened to the Authors Mother, I could not wait to get started. Mental illness is such a difficult disease sometimes it is subtle changes and other times more severe but its extremely difficult to find a way to help especially if the affected person does not want the help. I found the book very touching and very interesting, especially the early years of Carolyn and Grace Kelly, and I know i [...]

    This book was a very interesting story. It gave a brief glance into the modeling scene in New York in the early 1950's. The story of a top model, befriending a young Grace Kelly and their friendship over many years. The author's mother was in the lime light of society and later years falling into mental illness-with the final result being homeless. Nyna Giles is the author who had know to why and how her mother went from one extreme to the other. Through her research she learned the why and how, [...]

    Received this book from , I will be sharing it. Mental illness affects so many people. Thank goodness most can now be treated, but they must take their meds. These children could not live normal lives. It was a very quick read

    An adult daughter searches for answers to why her mother has become homeless and seems to be satisfied with that life. Over many years talking with people who knew her mother she finds her answer. I recommend this book to people who like memoirs. I received this book from for free.

    Giveaway Winner: A great read ~ I was quite intrigued. The author'sstyle for telling her and her mother's story was engaging and the way shedeveloped the story to weave in mental health was done so with compassion andwith validation for those with similar struggles.

    I received this book free in a giveaway. That did not influence this review. I found this book fascinating. It was a book that I couldn't put down. I read it in two days.It was a moving story of a daughter who loved her mother, but didn't understand her. An authoritarian father and a mother with mental health issues--in other words a dysfunctional family tale. It wasn't depressing, but I did feel for the family members. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
