review 1: Spacek's title says it all -- somehow this Texas-born Oscar-winning actress has stayed down-to-earth and grounded. Readers learn all about her tomboy, baton-twirling, small town childhood, the loss of her beloved brother Robbie, and her initial intentions to make it as a singer-songwriter. Still married to the art director she met early in her motion picture career, blessed with two daughters and loving relationships with parents and friends, Spacek has a way of telling about her life that is very natural, filled with anecdotes about both the famous and "ordinary" folks with who she has shared a wonderfully colorful and rewarding life.
review 2: This vacillated between 3 and 4 stars. There was one really special chapter in it about her brother Robbie that peak
... moreed right up to 5+ stars, very powerful. But most of the book was a relaxing, lazy stroll through her life with some very funny pieces here and there. I have a great respect for her personal character, very nice. But it did not seem that there was enough here for a memoir. Great values, though, and she never seemed to let the LA Hollywood thing ruin the good ole country girl she had inside. less

Very interesting visit into her life. She was very candid considering she is so private.
Beautiful, loving, touching and sweet. Great life philosophy. Loved it!
Enjoyed ~ One of the better autobiographies.
