Didn't care for it overall. Ian is supposed to be attracted to Elizabeth's intellect and well as her beauty; from her behavior most of the time, I found her intellect to be non-existent.

The heroine is really stupid, TSTL, in fact; the "hero" is a huge jerk, a total user, and it takes him forever to finally decide he loves the heroine. Add to this the repeated inaccurate use of Gaelic terminology, and you come up with a really weak effort. This book really was absolute tripe.

A friend gave me this book. I started reading it one night when I couldn't sleep, and before I knew it I was half way through it. My Mother's Keeper was simply fascinating. Reading about BD's travels and adventures was interesting in itself (she did more by the time she was 16 than most people do in their entire lives), but the startling revelations about Bette Davis' mental disorder and its effects on her family made this a book you couldn't put down. The frank portrayal of Davis' bizarre behavior created a dark, tense mood, kind of like watching a horror movie. I always thought I had a bad childhood (probably a lot of people do) but I really feel for BD and what she had to endure.
