Lynda Bellingham is much-loved as the warm and quick-witted panellist on Loose Women. In Lost and Found, Lynda tells the story of how she recovered from two destructive marriages, and many other challenging experiences. Yet her sense of humour has never left her, and along with the darker moments, she recalls hilarious anecdotes from stage and screen. This is the inspiring story of a survivor.

I started listening to this with high expectations because I have liked this actress in most of the things I have seen her in over the years, especially the Oxo adverts and All Creatures Great and Small.
Her early life was very interesting, then it became quite painful and boring listening to the sometimes cringe-worthy details of her sex life and disastrous marriages. I almost gave up, but when she embarked on finding her birth mother my interest picked up, as it was a good story. Her narration was good. I couldn't help feeling, at times, that she didn't realise this was real life (her real life) not a soap opera with her in the starring role.
When it returned to her very very painful marriage with her second husband. I couldn't help having periods of disbelief that she continued in this mentally abusive relationship for so long.
Credit must go to her family and friends for being so supportive. In the end I am glad her life has turned out so well, but I would only recommend listening with caution.

honest delightful enlightening
Linda Bellingham shows herself as a product of the 60's who had good and bad times but came through with a smile
herself of course
The family isn't always about blood relations
Linda's description of being an abused wife made me realise that these things do go on in every social class. She deserves credit for discussing her response so openly and honestly so people can understand the complex feelings when it happened
Honest, moving, witty.. So glad I bought this.. A wonderfully well written autobiography performed beautifully - so sad Lynda didn't get to spend long enough with the love of her life
Read Lyndas final book, theres something I've been dying to tell you' before this one and I found Lost and Found so sad as it showed a clear picture of the fact that she was in a perfect place in her life and was so full of hope for the future. Lovely lady and such an honest biography. May she rest in peace.
One of the best bio's I have read, very interesting life.
Too many as she told a lot of good stories and was very honest.
It was all about Linda
Read this before reading he next book there is something Im dying to tell you.
