When I first started reading In Pieces I wasn't sure I was going to like it. There was so much family history, going clear back to Ms. Field's great grandparents, and I wasn't expecting that. I had a bit of trouble keeping everyone straight in my mind. And I hated her stepfather! From Gidget, on, I was enthralled, however. What a sense of humor this woman has! When I read about her time as a Golden Globes presenter I laughed until I cried!! I loved all of the photos, too. All in all a fascinating book.
