For millions around the world, Carol Brady is synonymous with motherhood but growing up the youngest of 10 in rural Indiana in the aftermath of the Great Depression, Florence lived a life quite different from that of the quintessential TV mom she played on tv. Her father was a dirt-poor tobacco tenant farmer who was nearly 50 when he married Florence's 25-year-old mother and was nearly 70 when she was born. Her childhood was one of abuse and abandonment. Her father was an alcoholic and their home home rarely had electricity or running water. When she was 12 her mother left the family to work and never returned. Florence opens up about her childhood, as well as the challenges she's faced as an adult, inc.stage fright, postpartum depression, extramarital affairs and divorce and her hearing loss and heart problems. She writes with honesty and wisdom of how her faith and ability to survive has brought her through rough times to a life of profound joy and purpose. She notes that this memoir 'is written as a natural consequence of forgiveness and compassion, not only for those who harmed me but most importantly, for myself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I count Florence as one of my dearest friends. Now I count her as one of my favorite story tellers. I have always loved the way she looks at life with humor and inspiration. This book proves that-in spades!"--Carol Burnett
"The teenaged Florence Henderson only needed a one-way ticket to Broadway when she left her hometown in Southern Indiana. The great Rodgers and Hammerstein quickly recognized in her what the rest of us would also soon discover -a big talent matched with an even bigger human spirit."--Bill Cosby
"If you think you know Florence Henderson-think again. Her journey is both inspirational and jaw dropping. She is one gutsy lady."--"Judge Judy" Sheindlin
