An absolutely amazing book. I bought it because of the reviews on other websites and because of word of mouth. Crissy has had an absolutely eventful life that it sounds like something from a dark British film or a soap opera but it isn't, it's her actual life.

I didn't know much about her other than that she was the loud mouth scouser off Benidorm, so the whole book was a real shock to me and it was great to read about her overcoming what she has been through in her life. So different to most ce

To watch Crissy in Benidorm, you would never conceive that she has had such a traumatic life. Couldn't put the book down.

'This Heart Within Me Burns', the autobiography of actress and comedienne Crissy Rock is one of the best I've ever read.

It is rare that a cry whilst reading a memoir, but her life has been so sad. From childhood sexual abuse by her grandfather, to loosing her beloved nana, she was raped at 15 by a stranger and had his baby, she then married a violent bully, the physical abuse she suffered was horrific, and then came homelessness and another unhappy marriage.

But she rebuilt her life, and her cour

What a fantastic book. Crissy shows that no matter how bad a life you have, you can make it better yourself. This woman is truly inspirational. When you are watching her in Benidorm, or doing her stand up, no one can imagine what she has been through.

good read couldn't put it down Very sad tragic life explains her tough approach to life and close to the knuckle humour

Having expected a good giggle, this book was actually quite grim in places. However, there was still a good bit of Scouse humour and heart warming tales.

The best from the heart book I have read in along time. Very few books make me cry and also laugh out loud. Crissy went through some really though times in her life and came out the other side.
