I recommend it highly! Please let me know what you think, too!
I have this book. It is good but sad in parts too
In case anyone didn't know, if you buy the dvd for "Laura", it has the Biography special on her as an extra feature

yeah i definitely will! unfortunately i dont have a digital camera (the down points of having budget loving parents lol) but when i go to my friend rodellee's this week who does have one i will upload it! :-) it is really delicate looking... it is one of those thin ring bands with emerald encrusted all the way around... (if that makes any sense lol) it isnt like a huge jewel. It is so old! hehe I am very excited... My biggest fear is losing it!! I lose all my jewelry so this time i am never ever taking it off haha even if that means taking a shower and not removing it... haha. oh gosh now when i get married... i swear i will lose that ring all the time. :-( lol. I should post some pictures of my grandmother her sister! hehe i have them scanned. I dont know if you want me to post them since they arent of gene... but her sibling... but if you do then let me know! i would be more than happy to share! hehe.

wow Tierney, thanks!

It's amazing the way the Hollywood factory transformed a woman to make her even more beautiful.
