Does anyone really see the person behind the movie star? Florence Henderson was iconic in her T.V. show years, but how many people actually knew her as Florence rather than, say, Carol Brady? She has a very diverse and complicated background.

The reader will get to read a little about her mother and father, how different they were and the problems Florence faced as a young child. She endured abuse and abandonment...described with a fair amount of detail in the book. The reader will immediately like Florence as a person and be drawn into the book. The book is very factual, it doesn't feel as if the author is attempting to sway the reader to a certain side or way of thinking. Florence makes it to her adult years, where more trouble lies in wait for her. She also has plenty of good events occur to even out the bad. The reader will likely find him/herself more interested in Florence's life rather than her movie star years. She will become just a person with an interesting story to the reader, the reader will think of her as Florence rather than Carol. This book is very well-written and recommended to adults/young adults who enjoy nonfiction. ( )
