Liz Parker tells her memoirs, which cover a myriad of topics. She starts when she was born in India, then recalls how at the age of four she was sent to boarding school in England. After that, she studied drama and met and married a talented actor. They divorced after seven years and she was left to bring up two young daughters alone. Her second husband died and she then had a son to care for. Liz developed cancer, but after a successful unorthodox treatment she decided to leave England at the age of 59. She bought a run-down Taverna and yacht club on a tiny island in Greece. Her middle daughter helped her to run the idiosyncratic outpost. Tragedy then struck again on the idyllic island, leaving Liz alone once more. Liz’s memoir is by turns harrowing, uplifting, fascinating and bittersweet.

As you read this memoir, you see behind the scenes of an actor’s life – both hers and her ex husband and realise things aren’t always so rosy. I laughed with her and I cried with her. What a brave lady to overcome all the tragedies she endured. A book I found hard to put down.
The Author. Liz Parker. An honest and fascinating account of her life. I hope she continues to write as I’m sure she has more to offer.
