Actress and author of the New York Times bestseller Down Came the Rain, Brooke Shields, explores her relationship with her unforgettable mother, Teri, in her new memoir. Brooke Shields never had what anyone would consider an ordinary life. She was raised by her Newark-tough single mom, Teri, a woman who loved the world of show business and was often a media sensation all by herself. Brooke's iconic modeling career began by chance when she was only eleven months old, and Teri's skills as both Brooke's mother and manager were formidable. But in private she was troubled and drinking heavily. As Brooke became an adult the pair made choices and sacrifices that would affect their relationship forever. And when Brooke’s own daughters were born she found that her experience as a mother was shaped in every way by the woman who raised her. But despite the many ups and downs, Brooke was by Teri’s side when she died in 2012, a loving daughter until the end. Only Brooke knows the truth of the remarkable, difficult, complicated woman who was her mother. And now, in an honest, open memoir about her life growing up, Brooke will reveal stories and feelings that are relatable to anyone who has been a mother or daughter.

‘There was a little girl’ . . . and her name was Juliet Payne. When she was good she lived in the New Forest with her widowed father, principal of an educational establishment, and once a month she spent a weekend in London taking piano lessons. When she was bad, which was on those same seemingly innocent weekends, she became a teenage whore. And as such she was found strangled in a London flat. Which brought Detective-Inspector Neil Carter on the scene, for although it seemed an open and shut case with the girl’s last client charged with the crime, Neil had once given her his name and rank in a sleazy London bar, and she had appealed to him for help a bare hour before she died. He had a painful sense of personal involvement in the death of this girl with two faces. Both faces were hidden. To find them, Neil and his bride Cathy spend their honeymoon anonymously in the New Forest, asking questions in pubs and hotels and at the college which was the murdered girl’s home. Their discoveries increase Neil's uneasy conviction that the wrong man has been arrested.

The bell had clanged and the gates of the stockade were closed. There were some houses on the outside; there was not so much fear of the Indians here, for the French had the art of winning them into friendship. Farms were cultivated, and the rich bottom lands produced fine crops. Small as the town was twenty years before the eighteenth century ended, it was the headquarters of a flourishing trade. The wisdom of Pierre Laclede had laid the foundation of a grand city. The lead mines even then were profitably worked, and supplied a large tract of the Mississippi River east and west. Antoine Freneau stood a few moments in the door of his log hut, down by the old Mill Creek, listening with his hand to one ear. There were sounds of spring all about, but he was not heeding them. Then he turned, closed the door, which was braced on the inner side with some rough iron bands; fastened it with the hook, and let down a chain. He was seldom troubled with unexpected evening visitors. The log hut was hidden at the back with trees enough to form a sort of grove. It had two rooms. This at the front was a sort of miscellaneous storehouse. Freneau did quite a trade with the Indians and the boatmen going up and down the river. There was no real attempt at orderly store-keeping. Articles were in heaps and piles. One had almost to stumble over them. The back room was larger. There was a stone chimney, with a great wide fireplace, where Freneau was cooking supper. In the far corner was a bed raised on sawed rounds of logs, with skins stretched over the framework, on which was a sack of hay with a heap of Indian blankets, just as he had crawled out of it in the morning. A table and three stools manufactured by himself; a rude sort of closet, and a curious old brass-bound chest, now almost black with age, completed the furnishing. The puncheon floor, in common use at that time, was made with logs split in the middle and the rounding side laid in a sort of clay plaster that hardened and made it very durable. The top would get worn smooth presently. The walls were hung with various trophies and arms of different kinds. Two windows had battened shutters; one stood a little way open, and this was on the creek side.

This is my Mom's journal, the daily life of a single teenage mother. Her experience with me as an infant was so much fun. My Mom soon learned that it wouldn't be easy caring for a baby all day, every day. Day one began the journey when she introduced me to her friends and family. She fixed my curly brown hair up in a bow, and put a newborn diaper on me. Mom didn't know there were so many styles of diapers to choose from in the store. It was mind-boggling. My mom said I had the cutest little ears she had ever seen. I was very heavy for mom to carry me everywhere all over school, including her books! The only time when she needed a babysitter was when she had football games and class, so basically I was with the babysitter all day. I saw right then that day care would be a necessity. I hired my parents, my granddad, and my friends to baby sit. Whenever I and the other went to practice, we created a meeting place in the classroom. If Abigail were in need care services, I would pay around $90 a week just for her to go to day care, and that doesn't include any extra food or diapers I would need to send. I also couldn't imagine having to wake up every two hours all night long to feed, change diapers, and rock Abigail back to sleep. Then again, I know I would really love my baby, so I would take care of her the proper way. Before Abigail was born, I know I was going to name her Abigail. If one day I have a boy, I am going to name him Colton. Hopefully, whomever I marry will think the same. I have decided I only want a few children, about three, but I definitely do not want to be a pregnant mom in college, taking care of more children when I am only a kid myself. I know I would have to focus on my schoolwork instead of taking care of a baby. I gave Abigail a certain time to play and then it was nap time for my little baby. She needed her rest for the next day because we would have to go to school then day care all over again.
