Inhaltsangabe:

A compelling story of love, loss, celebrity, and family survival from one of the nation's favorite soap stars. Elaine Lordan is well-known to millions as EastEnders' Lynne Slater. Yet the real-life heartache and loss she came to suffer eclipsed even the rollercoaster troubles of her TV character. After leaving the show, Elaine lost her beloved mother when she took her life under a train. Then later that same year, just two days after her wedding, Elaine lost James, her one-year-old son and only child, to a rare condition. Whatever It Takes is the story of a no-nonsense working-class girl who hit the big time and enjoyed several happy years as one of the nation's favorite soap stars. Things took a downward turn as her heavy drinking and affair with a married man led to her being hounded by the press. Yet Pete would become the love of her life and together they would experience the unfathomable joy of having a child. This flush of happiness was short-lived, though, as Elaine felt the full impact of her mother's death, while her son James battled for life. It wasn't long before family life revolved around the hospital—hoping for the best, but fearing the worst. Full of larger-than-life characters from her boisterous Irish family and close circle of north London friends, Elaine tells her story with heart-wrenching candor. In this life-affirming memoir of overcoming tragedy, we see how Elaine's indomitable spirit and innate humour have carried her through even the bleakest moments, and how one woman's "sink or swim" approach has ensured her survival.

About the Author:

Elaine Lordan was born and brought up in Islington, north London. As a child, she became a member of the nearby Anna Scher Theatre. Her first professional job, at the age of twelve, was in the West End production of the musical Annie. For the next twenty years she worked extensively on the stage, and also in feature films and on TV. In 2000 she joined the cast of EastEnders, playing the part of Lynne Slater. She left the show in 2004, and appeared again on TV the following year in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Elaine continues to live in Islington, with her husband.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
