Publisher Description

Known for her outstanding performances on the groundbreaking television series The Good Wife and ER, Julianna Margulies deftly chronicles her life and her work in this deeply powerful memoir.
 
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY GOOD HOUSEKEEPING • “At once a tender coming-of-age story and a deeply personal look at a young woman making sense of the world against a chaotic and peripatetic childhood.”—Katie Couric

As an apple-cheeked bubbly child, Julianna was bestowed with the family nickname “Sunshine Girl.” Shuttled back and forth between her divorced parents, often on different continents, she quickly learned how to be of value to her eccentric mother and her absent father. Raised in fairly unconventional ways in various homes in Paris, England, New York, and New Hampshire, Julianna found that her role among the surrounding turmoil and uncertainty was to comfort those around her, seeking organization among the disorder, making her way in the world as a young adult and eventually an award-winning actress.
 
Throughout, there were complicated relationships, difficult choices, and overwhelming rejections. But there were also the moments where fate, faith, and talent aligned, leading to the unforgettable roles of a lifetime, both professionally and personally—moments when chaos had finally turned to calm.
 
Filled with intimate stories and revelatory moments, Sunshine Girl is at once unflinchingly honest and perceptive. It is a riveting self-portrait of a woman whose resilience in the face of turmoil will leave readers intrigued and inspired.

Joyspring Music ,

Great book!

A very honest and interesting life story that you could pick up and read a few interesting chapters at a time, and pick it up again at a later date but still stay connected. Real people, real emotions and experiences.

Great Read from start to finish

I really enjoyed reading her life story.

We had similar mothers.

So interesting and honestly told.

I couldn’t wait to read it everyday.

Captivating

Really interesting memoir. Had difficulty putting this book down. I’d say Julianna is an old soul from the start. She had goals and met them! Nice to read that she didn’t turn to drugs and alcohol which would have been easy to do. I admired her as an actress and now I do as a person. Great read.
