On March 25, 1969 Linda Hale Bucklin learned her vivacious mother was dead, her right temple blown out by a bullet from her father's pistol. Was it suicide or homicide?

Standing up to her father, heir to the Broadway/Hale Department Store fortune, Linda is disinherited, then ostracized from the family she loves. When her father marries his mistress, Denise Minnelli, stepmother to Liza Minnelli, the family unravels.

Once a child of privilege, Linda recounts, in vivid detail, her extraordinary life--summers on the family's 10,000 acre ranch in Northern California, hunting trips to Africa and Alaska, high society vignettes of a fourth-generation San Francisco family, and her father's final decision: to leave the entire family fortune to Minnelli.

But amid the ashes, Linda finds a new strength: the strength to forgive the one who started it all.

REVIEWS:
"...a jolting memoir." The New York Post

"...a book you won't be able to put down." David Patrick Columbia, New York Social Diary

About the Author:

Linda feels blessed to be surrounded by her three grown sons, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren. A fourth-generation San Franciscan, she now lives with her husband in Mill Valley, CA.

Review:

Reverend Alan Jones, Ph.D., OBE, dean of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco: "Linda Bucklin shares with us a hard, yet tender story. We are called to practice the art of living truthfully. It's the only way we can find our own true path. But how do we "declare" who we are without our testimony being at someone else's expense? The danger of a memoir is that we paint ourselves always in a good light. Our mistakes are forgivable and those of the ones who have hurt us are not. Linda Bucklin's fierce honesty avoids these traps and we have a story to challenge and touch the heart--that of a daughter who stood up against her father and deeply loved him to the end. That's why this story is not only Linda's story. Its truth is universal."
