Ellen Burstyn's journey through life and through her spirit are believable and inspiring. She shares her pain and her triumphs. She shares her spiritual growth - its ups and downs. Though not a strickly Christian path, a path that does lead to a stronger faith in a supreme being and his son, Jesus.

A friend shared this book with me. I was familiar with Ms Brustyn before but would now call myself a true fan. The book inspired me to see all her movies and has given me a new respect. She has found her own path and is an admirable example for others.

Ellen B. has clearly had an interesting life but the book itself never takes itself off the ordinary - no great enlightenment, no real highes or lows, just a rather dispassionate telling of a story. She is a great actress so I will continue to enjoy her on the stage and screen and skip the page.

After seeing Ellen Burstyn on Oprah, I looked so forward to reading it. I was disappointed. I found it to be boring and to go on and on about finding her spirituality. She is very hippy-ish. I wouldn't recommend the book although I do love Ellen's movies.

I could not put this book down and read it in a couple of days Ms Burstyn in writing her memoir takes us with her on her adventures to far away places her search for spirtual insights and her life as a Hollywood and Broadway star..a life filled with passion and a constant quest for truth. She is a remarkable woman who lives a remarkable life. I loved her movies and I now love her. I highly recommend her book you will not be disappointed!

Some parts of this book will have you very appreciative about your own childhood. Ms. Burstyn has endured many hardships, both from her mother and stepfather, and also from her marriage to Neil Burstyn. I feel pity for her, except for one fact. She seemed to leave her son, Jefferson, behind much of the time, as she was out seeking 'truth.' She did seem to have a good relationship with him, though, and overall I had a good feeling about her. I just think she could have put her son at a higher priority in her life. But, on the whole, I really enjoyed reading about her life and although a bit long, it was a great read.
