Item Description...
Hope Publishing House When Linda's mother died on March 25, 1969, an apparent suicide, nothing of Linda's staid world remained the same. Her father, the scion of a wealthy San Francisco family, already enamored with Denise Minnelli, fell under her control. Denise managed to estrange him from his family and end up the sole heir of his estate. Linda recounts here, in a frank and honest narrative, her pilgrimage of gradually learning to stand up for herself and make peace with her history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Memories?  Apr 24, 2008
First of all, this book's sentences are for the most part structured the same way, i.e., "Used to a strong woman, my father looked for a wife who could protect him." That seems incorrect, but I cannot find the rule govering the use of "my father" or "my mother" or "my governess." In the second place, this book is not so much about memories and how those memories relate to making up who Linda Hale Bucklin is, it is more about the facts of this family's life: the mother's death, the other woman, the lawsuits, the paintings. And, in the third place, after having read the book, I felt put off by The Very Reverend Alan Jones' remarks in the Foreward praising the author for having examined her soul. From my own point of view, this has not been done; there is no indication of who Linda Bucklin really is. My impression is that the author is still very testy about the outcome of events in her life. She gave the step-mother from hell a lot of space, and the ending where she realized just how afraid her father had been didn't really have much impact. It would be a lot more interesting if someone took the time to look into exactly what happened to her birth mother.
Appeared to be written solely for revenge  Jan 17, 2008
Which is no problem- bring it on, I will read it. But don't make it out to be the story of a journey and at least give us better reasons why we should despise the person (in this case, it was her stepmother Denise Minnelli, who was cold-hearted, but no Dede Traina.)This book started out as if it was going to be very interesting, but it dragged a little. I was left a little unsatisfied. I think I am forever ruined by the delicious "Oh the Glory of it All" by Sean Wilsey, who had a similar situation (San Fran society, ultra rich parents, evil stepmother) and gave us much more of a reason to relish his book and the revenge on those who deserved it.
This book seemed as if it were put out solely to drag Denise Minnelli's name through the mud (which she probably deserved) but it seemed too obvious. The author was likeable; I felt for her, was proud of her and didn't doubt everyone deserved what they got. It just seemed a little juvenile.
learned something  Jan 1, 2008
I found this item interesting mostly because I learned a great deal about Upper Class society and it's workings in San Fransisco. I do not know if this was excactly the authors intention. It was a good book, mut more social history.
An excellent read!  Jul 5, 2007
This book was well written and I enjoyed it so much that I had a hard time putting it down to get some sleep. It is amazing how a parent can be so wrapped up in themself that they can't see how they are negatively affecting their children but then the narcissistic among us are not capable of a love based on give and take. Kudos to Linda for rising above her upbringing to become the wonderful person that she is. The world is a much better place for it. Thanks to her for writing this book and seeing that there are others that have grownup in similar situations and have not turned into the very creatures that have inflicted so much grief on them as a child.
an amazibngly wonderful book  Jun 11, 2007
A very level recounting of dysfunction among the rich and social as told by a daughter in the family. The dish, though great reading, is secondary to a young woman getting a grip on a losing situation and finding her strength, and her self.
