Completely disagree with j_burchum (earlier review). This is a truthful, soul-searching story of Ms. Locke's life. The good and the bad is written with a candor that is commendable. She does not blame anyone for what happened to her, but rather explains to the reader the reasons for her choices. Recounting her life with Clint Eastwood and all the good times between them was undoubtedly painful; and to write about the battle in court between herself and Warner Bros./Eastwood took tremendous courage. This is a story only Sondra Locke could tell. Sondra Locke is brutally honest about herself, Eastwood, and the entire movie-making industry and how corrupt it can be. She reveals another side of Clint Eastwood, a side the public never sees. A brooding, paranoid, dominating individual who doesn't like to be crossed; and heaven help you if you do. It is also interesting to read that Ms. Locke finds out during her lawsuit against Eastwood that he has a whole other secret life, AND two more children. When you finish this book, you will be satisfied that justice was served for Ms. Locke and maybe feel some relief for her that in her battle against the odds she prevailed. A MUST HAVE for your library.
What a fantastic indepth book of a beautifull, intriguing, strong and honest woman. She did not have it easy on so many occasions. A divorce is always hard. But to be so deceived by a person is even more painfull. What I like most is that she wrote the book ' as a matter of fact', taking everybody's feelings into consideration. She is not complaining. She reminds me of a gorgeous elvin who is stunned when wicked things happen. That's exactly how I am. It is sad to enter the world and encouter so much viciousness. But through it all she kept her strengt, grace and dignity (and sweetness) and that is what counts the most. Thank God for Gordon!
