Synopsis
Born to a railroad baron who died when she was still a toddler, Gloria Vanderbilt knew the comforts of family fortune but never maternal or paternal affection. In A Mother's Story, Gloria reflects on her own childhood tragedies while trying to make sense of--and learn to cope with--her son's suicide. Beautifully written and inspiring, this account of a mother's coping with a son's death will touch and sadden all those who read it.
Amazon.com Review
In 1988, Gloria Vanderbilt's 23-year-old son Carter committed suicide. As Vanderbilt looked on, Carter swung away from the terrace wall of her 14th-floor New York apartment and, in Vanderbilt's words, "He let go." In this poignant memoir, Vanderbilt reflects on her own painful history and what she describes as "the final loss, the fatal loss that stripped me bare." She thought, she says, that she could not survive the death of her son. This memoir is a testimony to her courage and her own return to life.
