It's amazing how Mackenzie, Tatum, Valerie, Brooke, Carrie Fischer and many more all write books, But Catherine James
tells a story. One rich with warmth, forgiveness, desire, hope and faith. An honor to have had her share her story.
Thank you, Catherine.

I loved the book... I can't even describe how I felt when I read the part in the book where Catherine goes back to take a look at the cottage in CT and she describes how she knew the young girl and her blond baby boy who once lived there... talk about tears flowing...

And when she lost Mimi...

Catherine James, you are a class act, lady! Cheers!

this book was pure pleasure for me. i am of the same generation, and roughly the same age as the author. especially interesting was the description of the cottage in connecticut. i spent 6 years working 3 days a week in cornwall bridge, connecticut. this was in the 80's, and it was and still is peaceful and beautiful. granted, many are second homes of nyc people, but that doesn't deter from the beauty. thank you catherine for a fascinating story. william

I just finished your book at about 3a this morning. I started it and could not put it down. You made musical legends into everday people for me. The only two things I was hoping would happen, were that you were able to aquire all of your aunt claire's posessions( i bet they were something!)and end up with Jackson Browne. Thank you for your amazing story. Please don't let that one be the last.

I loved Dandelion! Thank you for writing in such a gentle, polite and inoffensive style with no harsh
or vulgar language. Honestly, the gentle sweetness of your writing as well as the tactful way of
phrasing things is just so rare and it is truly appreciated ....as it takes the harsh edge off of

I knew your were the "real deal" when you said you liked either Catholic School or Catholicism
since it is now so common to hear people bash the Catholic experience. I also went to a
Catholic School and thought it was, frankly, wonderful and the people who are Catholics
to be the nicest I have ever met. Very civilized and the religious rites are exceptionally beautiful!
I am now an agnostic but always speak well of my Catholic experience and still implement
much of the wonderful morality in my daily life that was taught to me by the nuns and priests.

When you said about your relatives deaths, "how could they leave" me.....I was there myself.
It is so hard to see it all "gone with the wind" ....the houses, the people, the craziness.....when
they are gone, you just can't believe it. Thank you for writing that as I identified with that
statement and have felt that way myself after losing my family and the established family home.

Thank you for the book. Since I am your age (b l951) and a native Californian who had
lived once in L.A. it meant a great deal! I really related to the book.

Please note..... a good Biography is very healing and does a great public service! You did GOOD! Thank You!
