A few days ago I did a post on Judy Lewis, daughter of Clark Gable and Loretta Young.
She wrote a book called "Uncommon Knowledge", so I thought I would go to Amazon.com and see if it was available for Kindle. Its not, but what I found shocked me. The book is a collector's item which means it is expensive. The cheapest one is $202.00, the highest is $999.00. That's to rich for my blood,lol.
Thankfully, people wrote reviews on it (and I'm thinking they got the book when it first came out). Anyway, I got the jest of the book from the reviews. Maybe, the price will come down and maybe I'll get one.
There was one review that shared how Mr. Lewis, the man Loretta Young married, would tell his sons that Judy was 'not one of them'
That opened up an old wound for me because my foster mother Louise, was always saying that about me. I remember when they got a movie camera, whenever it was brought out Louise would tell me to go to my room because 'I was not one of them'.
Old wounds die hard and some never heal. Reading this book would problay open more old wounds and its a good thing I won't be reading it. But, for others who are collectors, it would be a good book for their collection.
