Anyone who loved Melissa Gilbert in Little House on the Prairie will love this book. This book is stuffed full of interesting tidbits of information about Melissa and many of her mentors and co-stars.
Melissa goes into great detail about her life as a child star and her upbringing as an actor. Melissa was detailed about her strict upbringing and her very public life and affair with Rob Lowe. She was quite candid about her time with Michael Landon as well as his death. She even speaks frankly about her own marriages and addictions, her work within the Actor’s union and the friends and enemies she made there. There never seemed to be a dull moment in this book.
This book gives all the details you could hope to hear. I even shed a few tears remembering the death of Michael Landon and how she must have felt about that. What is nice about this book is that it has a happy ending and bright future for the now adult star as Ma Ingalls in her latest Prairie adventure on stage. I am sure we will see and hear more about Melissa before she is done with acting. This is a 5 star biography.
