1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 8, 2011
Format: Hardcover
At an early age Sheila Steafel realized she was a natural at making people laugh. This led her to her career as an actress. In this book she recounts the most intricate details of her life which makes the book fascinating.

Her life as a child in South Africa was of especially high interest to me. Her memories of jacaranda trees, African sunsets, school uniforms, orange squash (a drink) and sunlight soap (used for laundry) reminded me of when I lived in Africa myself.

However it is her story of her love for Harry H. Corbett that will really capture your heart. This relationship severely tests her and she must decide between having children and staying home or pursuing the true love of her life: acting. I think if Harry had been more supportive the marriage would have lasted.

Instead, after her divorce, Sheila Steafel continued to make acting a top priority winning her much success. She followed her heart all while letting herself fall in love numerous times. These relationships did not seem to hinder her career.

What will endear you to this author is her brutal honesty about all the mistakes she made along the way to success. Her strong personality often clashed with those she worked for and with leaving her with the feeling that she was sabotaging her life. This aside, the story of the realities of touring plays and how shows must go on drive the book forward and tell the exciting story of what it is like to live your entire life as a successful actress. I think you will love this book because the writing is warm and engaging!
