review: rearview mirror by alana stewart


As is probably the case for many, I was familiar with George Hamilton and Rod Stewart, but knew little of the woman they each had married and had children with.  In a memoir that kept me turning pages well past my bedtime, Alana Stewart shares how she went from living in a home lacking indoor plumbing in a small Texas town to living the Hollywood life as a model/actress who eventually married two famous men.  Her enthralling story came across as incredibly honest.  Stewart notes that “everything I’ve written here has been taken directly from the diaries that I have been keeping since I was nine years old, not from selective or vague memories.”  Refreshingly, Stewart tackles some tough subjects such as her rape, her divorces, and the struggles her family has dealt with without making herself into a victim.
5/5
