in pieces by sally field

Finding this book at our local Amazon Books, we were expecting a flavorless auto-biography of this actress about whom we knew very little. However, it ended up being quite the opposite. Entirely inspiring and totally heart-wrenching, this book confirms that Sally Field knows how to tell a story — especially her own. We highly recommend this book to anyone interested in hearing the inner thoughts of a working actress, a dedicated mother and, at times, a naive woman. She finds her way, her feelings, and herself in the chapters of this book, making it a riveting read.
