This slight memoir by Bill Buckley's youngest daughter does not delve deeply. It has some good detail on growing up in a powerful family feeling distanced from siblings and parents. But more personal details about the author's unhappy marriages, alcoholism, depression and recovery would have made it a better read. As memoirs go, it felt quite edited by and protective of the author.
