While I have never been a particular fan of Helen Reddy, I do enjoy reading Memoirs, and hers was $3.95 from Edward Hamilton, so I went for it.
I was drawn in to the fact that she has supposedly softened her feminist views through the years (haven't reached that part yet and not sure I ever will.) Her parents both dying the same year while she simultaneously learns she has a "rare, incredible disease," may have had something to do with that.
Not sure how this all plays out as I am only half way through her life so far. In my opinion it's not the best written book, and I may not finish it, however, I am impressed and taken in by this particular scenario:
Helen Reddy was single mom for awhile. This situation happened while she was living in a very old hotel while performing in Ohio. 'Miss Three' is her 3 year old daughter Traci.
So simple, but that's what it's all about, right?
I wonder how many mothers teach this to their children now.
I like how she said in reference to the Golden Rule: "...the same core truth is at the heart of all religions."
I have been receiving Edward Hamilton free catalogs in the mail for years. They are all discounted books and some DVDs. Postage and handling is only $3.50 per order (not per book). These catalogs arrive often, and I enjoy going through them each time.
Sorry, that just sounded like an advertisement. I didn't mean for it to. A few people have asked where I get my books, so I thought I'd add a link.
