About this title


The actress, producer, and wife of actor Charles Bronson traces her life--and her fight for that life--after she learned she had cancer

From Publishers Weekly:

Ireland, wife of actor Charles Bronson and herself an actress, discovered she had cancer in the summer of 1984, and here tells the story of her battle with the disease. In an affluent family setting that includes children from the previous marriages of both husband and wife, she struggled to develop the positive attitude that experts posit is an element of resistance to disease. In addition to conventional chemotherapy after her mastectomy, Ireland undertook holistic healing that involved homeopathic treatment, lying on an electromagnetic table and meditation with quartz crystals. With the assistance of these therapies and the support of her family, to whom she pays fulsome tribute, she explored her inner resources. Illness caused a reassessment of values, a scaling down of lifestyle, until she forged an understanding of pain and an ability to face a life-threatening situation. Upbeat and, despite some theatrical hyperbole, inspiring. Photos not seen by PW. First serial to Ladies Home Journal.
