An honest and enlightening memoir from beloved television icon Kate Jackson in which she reflects on her acting career and her personal journey—from beating breast cancer to adopting a son.

Known to television audiences everywhere as The Smart One on the 1970s smash-hit show Charlie’s Angels, Kate Jackson’s wit, sincerity, and spunk in her role as Sabrina on the show has endeared her to audiences for decades. Now, Jackson takes readers behind the scenes on the set of Charlie’s Angels, pulling back the curtain on her time with costars and illuminating Jackson’s intimate friendship with the late Farrah Fawcett.

In this refreshingly honest tell-all, Jackson tells her own powerful tale, revealing her brave battle in the face of recurring breast cancer, heart surgery, and her decision to adopt her now twelve-year-old son. In addition to her two-time battle with breast cancer, Jackson has undergone open heart surgery for a congenital defect and now serves as committed speaker on the issues of both breast cancer and heart health. Her personal struggles, as well as the dignity with which she handled them, provide a powerful backdrop for a story that is both one woman’s life journey in her own words as well as a look back at a golden time in television and the iconic ladies who got the chance to be angels.
