 Raised by unconventional Irish Catholics who knew "how to drink, how to dance, how to talk, and how to stir up the devil," Kate Mulgrew grew up with poetry and drama in her bones. But in her mother, a would-be artist burdened by the endless arrival of new babies, young Kate saw the consequences of a dream deferred. Determined to pursue her own no matter the cost, at 18 she left her small Midwestern town for New York, where, studying with the legendary Stella Adler, she learned the lesson that would define her as an actress: "Use it," Adler told her. Whatever disappointment, pain, or anger life throws in your path, channel it into the work. 

My Thoughts:

This was a touching and so heartwarming. Everyone goes through struggles in life and we can always overcome. Its great when I see authors sharing there stufgles and being brave about there feelings that they went through. I cannot tell you how many times I teared up, not because I felt sorry for the authors struggles but just the braveness of her heart. The author is a brave and wise person that you just have to love how she can impact anyone's life, and things can change if you want what's best for you.
