Bookmark of Spalding has chosen There’s Something I’ve Been Dying to Tell You, by Lynda Bellingham, as its book choice.
Lynda Bellingham was a tremendously gifted storyteller with a rich collection of tales of love, loss and laughter and this memoir brings her kind heart, courage and emotion to the page in vivid detail.
There’s Something I’ve Been Dying To Tell You is a brave memoir about Lynda’s battle with cancer. Facing death, she found joy and shared it with millions. Her story is an affecting and at times heart-breaking one but it is so often laugh-out-loud too and ultimately the way Lynda told her life story serves as a great inspiration to us all.
Woven into this very moving and brave story are extraordinary, colourful tales of her acting and family life that will enlighten and entertain as well as the journey that Lynda has taken to find the family of her birth father having already suffered heartache in her search for her birth mother. In the search for her father’s family, Lynda finds a family with a history in entertainment showing that acting was always in the blood.
This book was written in Lynda’s final months and revealed for the first time her fight with cancer. This edition includes a brand new chapter written by Lynda’s husband Michael about his love for her, her love of life and her glorious final send-off.
