Book Review - A Lotus Grows In The Mud by Goldie Hawn

Caught Me Totally By Surprise

I guess I’d always sort of looked down my nose a bit at Goldie Hawn. From what I could remember from my childhood in the 80’s – wasn’t she always playing the ditzy blonde? So why did I even grab a copy of this book – who knows (I usually only read business books!). I’m so glad I did though. This goofy and effervescent woman charmed me from within every page. I read it over a few days and was sad to put it down each time. Enlightening, funny, warm and enough to really change my mind.

Hi Kirsty,

I just wanted to let you know that I too have read this book. It was unexpectedly fabulous. With what I have seen of her movies and the gossip columns, I had an image of the typical ditzy blonde. Boy was I surprised when I read A Lotus Grows In The Mud! I loved this book and have shared it with my family and friends. I have a new found respect for Goldie Hawn and admire her immensely.
PS Love your website by the way!

Kath, great to hear from you. I felt the same way as you - it's cool when you get a nice fresh point of view like that! Stay fabulous. Kirsty
