At twenty-two Kate Mulgrew gave birth to a daughter. Having already signed the adoption papers, she was allowed only a fleeting glimpse of her child. Three days later she returned to work as the star of a popular soap opera. Twenty years later she went in search of the daughter she had given away. We know Mulgrew for the strong women she's played--Captain Janeway on Star Trek; the tough-as-nails "Red" on Orange Is the New Black. Now, in her memoir, we meet the most inspiring and lovable character of all: herself. Raised in a large, eccentric Irish family, Mulgrew is mischievous, brave, wise, and a born storyteller.

When a book stays with you for days after reading it, it can only rate a 5 star rating. Totally engrossing, memorable, at turns heartwarming and sad. This is a life fully lived. Listening to Kate Mulgrew is like being transported into a novel or play and having it spun out before you bit by bit. She and I are of an age and her stories ring true of that time and of those places when the world was our oyster and she lived it to the fullest. Yes there was heartbreak, but there were also highs. It took her a while to learn who she was and how to navigate her world rather than skim across it, but she did. She will always be an actress, as that is what she was born to do. Janeway to many of us, and now Red to others but she will also be daughter, sister, wife and mother to those most important to her. I hope she keeps on writing. I loved hearing her read her book as it was more performance than recitation with her darn sexy voice and it carried me away as a very good book should. Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

I have only seen Mulgrew in Orange is the New Black so I kept expecting to hear a Russian accent and every now and then I think I did! She lead quite an interesting life and I enjoyed hearing about it.
