Editorial Reviews

Review

“Alana Stewart is a rare blend of wisdom and glamour. Her relatable, womanly perspective on everything she has been through creates a compelling story—not only because of the glitz of its external drama, but also because of the sincerity of her internal search. She's had the outer life of a star and the inner life of a seeker. Her tears, her triumphs and her moments of understanding create a fiercely touching memoir. Her story remains with you and illuminates your own.”
—Marianne Williamson, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and motivational speaker

 “I’ve have had the pleasure of knowing Alana Kaye Collins from Nacogdoches, Texas when she first arrived in town, and whose name I helped change to Hamilton. Later, with no help from me. I saw her change it again to Stewart. Through marriages and divorces I’ve gotten to watch this fascinating and complex woman come into her own, from small town roots to the confidante of the glamorous and powerful. Her take on the ride is not only insightful and exciting, it’s gut-wrenching and ... more than enough for a lifetime and through sickness and health—ours and others—we have remained friends ... not a small thing in Tinseltown, but read it for yourselves…some of which is between the lines ... mine of course!”
—George Hamilton, Actor

 “Alana Stewart is as beautiful as she is smart, funny, compassionate, and wise. Talented in her own right, I imagine many a woman has envied her for all of these qualities, as well as for her very publicized marriages to two of America's iconic stars. What only a few of us know is the extraordinary number of obstacles and challenges Alana had to overcome, not just to live the life she has lived thus far, but to be here at all. She is all the more remarkable because of her incredible journey.”
—Carol Bayer-Sager, Oscar and Emmy Award-Winning Songwriter

I am an avid reader of biographies and memoirs, especially those related to the entertainment industry. I wasn't sure about this one but thought I would give it a try. I think it's one of the better ones I've read. I completely enjoyed it, even looked forward to grabbing it up to read it. I read it in two days and normally I spend a week to two weeks on a book. Alana Stewart grew up in an under privileged environment in Texas, abandoned by her father and sometimes by her mother. As a child, she had no indoor plumbing and her clothes were either handed down or sewn by her grandmother. She was bold enough and brave enough to leave Texas, head to NY and try her hand at modeling. She landed with the prestigious Ford Agency and then a fateful ride in a taxi propelled her toward her first marriage to George Hamilton. Ms. Stewart is honest about her heartbreaks, insecurities and setbacks. This book is honest, refreshing and captivating. I highly recommend it. I wish I had another one just as interesting to read.

I have to admit that I had no particular opinion on Alana Stewart. However, I had the opportunity to meet her briefly at BEA in 2012 and she was quite nice - actually talking to me for a few minutes and not simply dismissing me after signing her book card.

I was excited to get my hands on her book and when it released on Kindle, I jumped on it.

I was pleasantly surprised by the writing. Stewart had a rough childhood and I felt for her and her struggle with her emotions about this time in her life which obviously motivated much of her future.
She writes with passion and honesty about how hard it was and yet, does not hesitate to show that she was not always as supportive or present as she could have been.

In fact this is kind of a theme throughout the book - honesty. I like that immensely and I like that while describing her two major relationships (George Hamilton and Rod Stewart) she is conscious of the fact that she did not always make the best choices as a woman, wife or mother.

I have to admit that I do not understand her choice in men - as neither Hamilton or Stewart would be my choice, especially if I looked like Alana but that's not really pertinent to this review actually :)

I loved, loved the spirituality that is sprinkled throughout the latter part of the her memoir. It is obvious that Alana has been and continues to want to work on herself and for anyone in 12 step programs this book will touch a nerve (in a good way).

This book was quite short, but I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. Kudos to Stewart for her honesty and for being brave enough to write this.

I watched fox news today and Alana Stewart gave interview regarding her new book. In the few short minutes she spoke I was surprised of her humble beginnings and struggles in life. I ordered kindle edition and started the book today. I have read few chapters and can't put the book down. Her life is fascinating and the book is great read. I highly recommend it. Alana is a woman of kindness, elegance, strength, and I wish her much happiness from her children/new granddaughter Delilah. I am not from her generation but my mom told me years ago when Farrah Fawcett passed away that Alana was true friend to Farrah and a lady with much class. Its nice to read about a hollywood star who is down to earth and honest. Thank you for sharing your story with public.

I am finding this book difficult to put down, and yet, I dont want it to be finished! Ive known Alana for several years, enjoying many glorious and glamorous adventures. Her remarkeable beauty comes from an inner strength Ive long admired. Rearview Mirror is the kind of book every true friend needs to read, Alana manages to force the reader to examine their own insecurities while following in her journey. This book is not just a fascinating Hollywood Tale, it is a mirror from which you cant turn away. First Class!

Very interesting book. All that glitters is not gold in the area of entertainment, she handled it well considering her youth etc.

I really enjoyed every minute of Rearview Mirror. It was an easy read and it was a real page-turner for me. I think that anyone that reads this, male or female can relate to so many of the feelings that Alana Stewart shares about her life. It is always inspiring to see a woman face so many adversities and walk through them with such courage. Alana really opens up her heart and soul in this book and will inspire all who read it. I am recommending this book to everyone and I am going to be giving them as gifts at Christmas. This is a must-read!

She marries a jerk of a rock star and follows him around the world for years while he indulges in drugs,sex,rock n roll,alcohol and infidelity. Has children with him and leaves them in the care of others while she tags long to make sure he isn't with another woman which proves to be futile.
This all might be an incentive to read the book, but I thought it was depressing. She is beautiful,smart and talented and could have been successful in her own right, but she bought the big lie,so sad.

Good beginning - and the crux of the book describing her marriages had enough fun detail to interest any fan of pop culture. The issues with her kids warrant a book of their own, though. All in all, Alana is someone I can't help but like!
