intelligent, well written memoir that deals with not only losing a mother as a child, but also with having a famous mother whose life and death affected family, friends, acquaintances, and a whole lot of strangers One of the saddest aspects of the story was how Natasha Gregson Wagner always feared, as a young child, that her mother would one day go somewhere and never come back home She even carried out obsessive rituals to ensure her mother s safe return.In addition, since there were no witnesses to Natalie Wood s drowning, Ms Wagner has had to deal with her death being reinvestigated and having her beloved stepfather Robert Wagner accused by others of knowing exactly what happened as well as even accused of killing his wife The author explains in the memoir how she could not possibly believe such a thing, and offers evidence that those who have tried to make Mr Wagner guilty are only out for money, or revenge because he no longer gave them money Maybe Natalie Wood was the only one who could have explained what happened, maybe not Regardless, after going somewhere, she never came back home, just as her oldest daughter always feared would happen one day Note I received a
