I really wanted to like this book but something about the performance rubbed me the wrong way. I could relate to the content but the delivery didn’t strike me as authentic. Nearly everything about Kim’s voice was sing-song but I don’t know anyone who recalls every event in their life - good, bad or indifferent in a musical way and I wondered if it was genuine.

So grateful for Ms. Fields to share her wisdom and journey! Also glad it was read by her as I was able to really hear her words come to life and hear her passion.
Wow, where to begin! Kim Fields began her life in Harlem moving to Hollywood with her mother as a child. This is her autobiography, and it is a beautiful deep reflective account from a beautiful soul. It made me laugh in places, it also brought a tear to my eye sometimes too. Even though Kim has been in show business since she was a child there is so much in this book that is relatable to women in general. I loved how Kim herself narrated this, it very quickly started to feel like I was settling down for a drink with a good friend. I also appreciated Kim's reflections on faith and her beliefs throughout the book. I'm not particularly religious but I appreciate the beliefs of others and I enjoyed Kim sharing hers. I also enjoyed hearing how Kim progressed from a child star in a commercial to a 40 year old successful married mum of two. Like all of us, Kim had her challenges along the way, but she kept going. I think that makes her one inspiring lady.
