For millions of people around the world, Carol Brady is
synonymous with motherhood, but growing up as the youngest
of ten children in rural Indiana in the aftermath of the
Great Depression, Florence Henderson lived a life quite
different from that of the quintessential TV mom she later
played on television.
Florence's father was a dirt-poor tobacco tenant farmer who
was nearly fifty years old when he married Florence's
twenty-five-year-old mother, and was nearly seventy when
Florence was born. Florence's childhood was full of
deprivation and abandonment. Her father was an alcoholic at
a time when there was no rehab or help for the disease.
Their home rarely had electricity or running water. When she
was twelve, Florence's mother left the family to work in
Cleveland and never returned.
Florence opens up about her childhood, as well as the
challenges she's faced as an adult, including stage fright,
postpartum depression, her extramarital affairs, divorce,
her hearing loss, and heart problems. She writes with
honesty and wisdom of how her faith and ability to survive
has brought her through rough times to a life of profound
joy and purpose.
