My Funny Valentine: A Tribute to My Mother, Ann Sothern by Tisha Sterling (hardback)
As the daughter of a famous movie star, it was sometimes challenging to grow up in her enormous shadow. Who was I? I felt I had so much to live up to. How could I grow up and be as great a person as she?
Be that as it may, I did grow up and became my own person. I became an accomplished actress and a good person to others.
My Mother taught me to be strong. To be insightful and curious. To do what was right in the face of adversity that challenged most women of hers and my generation.
Thank you, Mom, for showing me your consistent strength and courage, your humor and your depth of character.
