A fascinating look at what it's like to grow up in front of and beyond the cameras. --Eve Plumb For nine seasons, Mary McDonough was part of one of the most beloved families in television history. Just ten years-old when she was cast as the pretty, wholesome middle child Erin, Mary grew up on the set of The Waltons, alternately embracing and rebelling against her good-girl onscreen persona. Now, as the first cast member to write about her experiences on the classic series, she candidly recounts the joys and challenges of growing up Walton--from her overnight transformation from a normal kid in a working class, Irish Catholic family, to a Hollywood child star, to the personal challenges that led her to take on a new role as an activist for women's body image issues. Touching, funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and always illuminating, Lessons from the Mountain is the story of everything Mary McDonough learned on her journey over--and beyond--that famous mountain. "For someone who started out as a sweet little girl afraid to speak up, it certainly is a pleasure to hear her shout from the top of the mountain now! --Alison Arngrim, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Prairie Bitch "She's a radiant woman whose truth comes from within. . .if I had to pick one word that described Mary Beth, it would be resilience." --Earl Hamner, Creator of The Waltons "Mary is a whole lot more than Erin on The Waltons. This book shows how she's handled all the highs and lows with grace." –George Clooney Includes Never Before Published Bonus Chapter!

“A warm, heartfelt novel about what it means to belong to a family. You won't want to put it down.” --Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author of A Lowcountry Wedding In a heartfelt story set in a picturesque small town in Virginia, Mary McDonough portrays three generations of women in a modern Irish-American family as they navigate marriage, motherhood, and independence. . . The Fitzgibbons--especially the women--have long been the backbone of Oliver's Well, Virginia. Matriarch Mary Bernadette is still striking and tireless at seventy-five, with a generous heart that belies her sometimes sharp tongue. Her husband, Paddy, owns the local landscaping business, daughter Grace is a nun, and son Pat and his wife Megan are successful lawyers. Her grandson, PJ, and his new wife, Alexis, live in a charming cottage behind the main house. Church, family, tradition, and the local historical society--everything Mary Bernadette cherishes is here. Yet below the surface, there are fractures. Megan sees the strained relationship between her husband and Mary Bernadette, who has never quite recovered from the loss of her first-born son. Megan, too, is torn between gaining her mother-in-law's approval and living life on her own terms. Alexis loves PJ deeply yet chafes against his grandmother's influence in their marriage. But when a looming scandal brings unexpected tragedy, the Fitzgibbons are compelled to determine the depth of their loyalty, find their strength--and repair the bonds that have held a town, and a family, together for so long. "A heartfelt, charming story." --Library Journal

Originally published as The House on Honeysuckle Lane, Mary McDonough’s novel is now a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie, Christmas on Honeysuckle Lane. Join Mary as she welcomes readers back to the small town of Oliver’s Well, Virginia, in a story of holiday and homecoming, as three siblings gather for a Christmas of unexpected gifts. Even in a town as picturesque and rich in history as Oliver’s Well, there’s something special about the Reynolds house on Honeysuckle Lane. Sturdy yet graceful, it’s where Andie, Emma, and Daniel Reynolds grew up—before they began to grow apart. For Danny, this first reunion since their mother’s death is a chance for him and his sisters to relive cherished holiday traditions before finally settling their parents’ estate. But readying the house for sale proves no easy task when every piece of furniture and every moment together stirs up the past. Andie, the oldest sibling, didn’t just leave home years ago, she left her young daughter too. Though she’s found success as a self-help author, coming back shakes her equilibrium. How can she presume to guide others if she can’t be honest with those closest to her, much less herself? . . . Middle child Emma struck out on her own instead of accepting her father’s offer to share his business. Yet now she finds herself wondering if it’s possible to start over. The house on Honeysuckle Lane contains a lifetime’s worth of joys and dreams, and its share of regrets too. This Christmas, it will be the place where Andie, Emma, and Danny come together to remember, laugh, fight, plan—and find their way forward as a family once more.

„Was für ein langer Weg es ist von einem Leben zu einem anderen: Doch warum schreiben, wenn nicht wegen dieser Distanz.“ Yiyun Li schreibt – ohne je das Wort zu verwenden – über ihren Selbstmordversuch, über das, was es bedeutet, an der Grenze zwischen Leben und Tod zu stehen. Sie kam als Immunologin von China nach Amerika und entdeckte erst dort, dass das Schreiben eine Form des Widerstands gegen die existenzielle Leere sein kann. In diesem zutiefst bewegenden Buch erzählt Yiyun Li von ihren Depressionen und von jenen Büchern von Stefan Zweig, Elizabeth Bishop und William Trevor, die sie aus ihrer Einsamkeit herausgerissen haben. Ein Buch über die lebensspendende Kraft der Literatur.
