Liza Campbell was often told, ?it?s a fairytale life you live.?? Liza?s father did, after all, hold the title of Thane of Cawdor, and the family divided their time between Cawdor Castle (as featured in Shakespeare?s Macbeth) and other impressive homes in England and Wales.? Theirs was a family with a legacy that had lasted almost a millennium.? Her father would, in the course of his life and his descent in to madness and addiction, fail to pass that legacy along.? He was a man haunted by demons; he would often drink himself into oblivion, recklessly driving along the narrow roads of northern Scotland and Wales, routinely crashing and coming within an inches of death.? In his moments of ?reformation,? he still lived in an alternate reality.? This is the story of her early?life, her family, and her father's ultimate failure.? ??????????? This wonderful, heartbreaking, yet ultimately forgiving memoir recalls a childhood played out on an extraordinary and secluded stage. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
