by Janine Turner
In "A Little Bit Vulnerable," actress Janine Turner opens up about her private life for the first time, claiming she feels "a little bit vulnerable." In this breathtaking sweep of her half a century of living, Turner journeys through the canyons of her life and tells how she sought horizons. Through the treasure chest of her private poetry, essays, opinion pieces, editorials, radio interviews and letters, she reveals how she climbed out of the canyons of heartbreak, alcoholism and the death of her father. She talks about her call to action for American men, women and children to preserve American principles, and she weaves wisdom from her ancestors, Publius, politicians and her own personal "life lessons" into a tapestry of triumph, taking the reader along with her. This moving memoir includes never-before-seen personal photographs of Turner and many of the famous (and infamous) people in her life.
"Janine Turner is a breath of fresh air in the political forum. Her educated opinions come from laborious research and a profound respect for our Republic's founding principles. She knows that liberty and knowledge are synonymous. Her quest to light a fire in the hearts and minds of America's citizenry is contagious." - Donald Trump
"Janine Turner is a renegade for the republic! Her essays on The Federalist and opinion editorials on culture, women, and politics evoke reason and clarify why conservative principles matter. If only everyone in Hollywood thought this way!" - Sean Hannity
"Janine Turner is a proud patriot. He father, Turner Gauntt, a graduate of West Point and an Air Force hero, was one of the first to fly Mach 2. She knows firsthand that our troops fight to protect our U.S. Constitution, which in turn protects our liberties, and her pride in her dad, and those who serve, shines bright in this wonderful and very personal book. Her tribute to her father, who recently passed, rivals the most moving of Hollywood screenplays." - Gary Sinise, actor, "Forrest Gump" and "CSI: NY"
"A leading voice in today's conservative movement, Janine Turner gives a thoughtful take on the state of the nation, the trials our country faces, and how her faith has been an integral aspect of her life in her new book, A Little Bit Vulnerable: Hollywood, God, Sobriety & Politics. By taking the reader on a journey through her own tribulations and how her faith has helped her overcome them, Janine provides a story of hope and inspiration." - Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to President George W. Bush and author of the New York Times bestseller, "Courage and Consequence"
