In this colorful memoir, Kimberly Childs quests for the love and home her glamorous, alcoholic mother is unable to provide. Jeanne Gibson is a mountain woman with unusual charisma-a real-life Holly GoLightly-who marries Broadway's meanest producer, David Merrick, and proceeds to self-destruct. Bounced from place to place, Childs grows up in Lady Eden's English boarding school, London's prestigious Savoy Hotel, a Kentucky farm with an outhouse, a Manhattan private girls' school, and amidst Broadway's theaters.
Seeking connection on the streets and in the communes of 1960s San Francisco, Childs discovers serenity through meditation and the Dances of Universal Peace. Aspiring for transformation, she finds home in an Indian Guru's ashram-then realizes she must trust her own instincts and courageously walks away. A touching story of compassion and forgiveness,Remember Me As Loving Youis a compelling read that will be an inspiration to anyone who has found themselves betrayed by the people they love.
Kimberly Child graduated from Adelphi University with a master's degree in social work. She has worked as a psychotherapist and fiber artist, and is a former small business owner. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina with her husband and dog.

Editorial Reviews

"Kimberly Childs's book is a rich read-a poignant, occasionally harrowing, but ultimately redemptive account of a life of longing, and not just that of the author but all of us to some degree. It speaks eloquently of how we are often defined by the empty places in our lives, the missing pieces, and presents a compelling and compassionate portrait of the gulf that often exists between how we want life to be and how it actually is, between our reach and our grasp. I offer Childs-and her book-a high-five for courage and stoutheartedness."—Gregg Levoy, author of Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life and Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life"Kimberly Childs's beautiful and lyrical writing tells her story of healing and following her heart. She shows us that healing isn't what we think it is but rather a transformation of the heart."—Peggy Tabor Millin, author of Writing in Circles: A Celebration of Women's Writing, Mary's Way: Cultivating a Peaceful Heart in Trying Times, and Women, Writing and Soul-Making: Creativity and the Sacred Feminine"Kimberly Childs' memoir chronicles the author's journey through London, Appalachian Kentucky, New York and 1960s San Francisco, decades and an internal landscape of longing and growing awareness, as she navigates the perilous relationship with her dazzling, vivacious but alcoholic mother and its devastating consequences on her life. It is an excellent read for anyone interested in the journey towards wholeness and the human heart's capacity for overcoming the imprint of a damaging childhood, told against the backdrop of vivid and varied places and times."—WNC Woman
