    I bought it because I’m a fan of Guiding Light and have to say it really does a great job of filling in the missing pieces of Lorelei’s past that the show never really addressed. I thought the most fascinating part of the book was that, in creating the backstory for this character, Ms. Chamberlin chose to make Lorelei’s past so similar to Beth Raines’ past–the only difference being that Lorelei acted the way Beth wanted to and never could. It’s such an interesting aspect of Beth’s psyche, and I give kudos to the author for helping us understand why the character of Lorelei arose.

    It’s a very easy read, and although I’m sure any fan of GL will find it entertaining, you don’t have to watch the show to understand what’s going on. At its heart, it’s the story of a woman’s struggle to remember her identity, and that, in itself, was very compelling.

    Guiding Light’s Biggest Fan (Boston, Mass.) –

    I am a long-time Guiding Light viewer and have just finished reading Lorelei’s Guiding Light: An Intimate Diary. I found it to be a very enjoyable, interesting, and sexy. It’s the perfect beach read and provides plenty of insight into the Lorelei Hills character (or as we learned, personality of Beth Raines). The conclusion the show had for the storyline was, in my opinion, too fast-paced and did not provide us viewers with the closure we needed. However, this very revealing book did just that. Beth Chamberlin proves by writing this book that she is not just another pretty soap opera face, rather an intelligent, gifted writer with an honest understanding of her character. I would recommend this book to all watchers of Guiding Light with even the slightest interesting in Lorelei Hills.

    I have read this book and once i started reading it i could not put it down until I had finished it. Great book! Great reading!
    Was great to know all that Lorelie had been through and brought
    you into respect for the character Lorelie. Keep up the great work Beth Chamberlin. When will you write another book?
