By turns, it is riotous, deeply serious, practical and sad. Reading it is like being at her kitchen table with a glass of wine to hand. (Daily Telegraph)

Lynda Bellingham was a tremendously gifted storyteller with a rich collection of tales of love, loss and laughter and this memoir brings her kind heart, courage and emotion to the page in vivid detail. There's Something I've Been Dying To Tell You is a brave memoir about Lynda's battle with cancer, facing death she found joy and shared it with millions. Her story is an affecting and at times heart-breaking one but it is so often laugh-out-loud too and ultimately the way Lynda told her life story serves as a great inspiration to us all.

Woven into this very moving and brave story are extraordinary, colourful tales of her acting and family life that will enlighten and entertain as well as the journey that Lynda has taken to find the family of her birth father having already suffered heartache in her search for her birth mother. In the search for her father's family, Lynda finds a family with a history in entertainment showing that acting was always in the blood.

This book was written in Lynda's final months and revealed for the first time, and in great detail, her fight with cancer and how her life was transformed since her diagnosis. This edition includes a brand new chapter written by Lynda's husband Michael about his love for her, her love of life and her glorious final send-off.

A must read – a touching, sad and funny book about how Lynda dealt with her diagnosis

109 people found this helpful.

I read this book to understand how a cancer sufferer feels when they have a terminal diagnosis to try and understand how my Mum is currently feeling. Lynda’s honest and sometimes brutual openness should be praised. It was particularly touching to read about how her family reacted to the news and her hopes and fears for how her illness would affect them.

Just heart wrenching

I am so sad that it took me so long to read Lynda’s brilliant book about her sad demise. I grew up watching her as the gravy lady but also enjoying her acting talents. She wrote this like she acted In her plays and tv roles with passion and a zest for telling it her way. What a sad loss to us the British public to lose someone so talented. If only she was still here so I could tell her. I hope her beloved family are keeping on track and talking about her often

Truly heart breaking true life story.

What a heart breaker this book is, Lynda tells her story so well, in a light hearted but also terribly sad at times way, I found it difficult to read at times due to the awful situation and at others difficult to put down.

It is brilliantly written. She holds nothing back

I bought this book just before Lynda died. I hoped to be able to read it before, but unfortunately she died just as I started it. It is brilliantly written. She holds nothing back, but it is done with good taste and so that you can get a clear picture of what she went through. It is a wonderful tribute to her and what she went through. A very, very brave lady and it would be a waste to her memory not to read this book. A must read for anyone who has suffered with cancer, knows of someone who has suffered with cancer or wants to understand the illness. She never complains about the hand she was dealt with. She just got on with it the best she could.

An inspiring book.

I really enjoyed this book, it’s heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. It’s also interesting to read with hindsight too. Lynda has written it beautifully and her love for her family stands out from the pages. But I’m glad she hasn’t been able to see what’s happened to her family since her tragic passing. She would be devastated.

This book is better at a second reading. Lynda Bellingham really was down and dirty..truthful which is such a change.Her husband has proven to be all the things she dreaded.Her son’s are still trying to understand how their beloved Mum could trust him.Hopefully she has left them with a legacy of deal with it and move on.

A hard book to read

 on 15 January 2015
By Cruise Queen
Lynda Bellingham always came across as the the friend or neighbour Id love to have… Drop everything for a cuppa or a glass or 2 of wine ! I found it hard to read this book,knowing the outcome and I was surprised that it wasnt depressing, indeed it was quite up lifting in places. I dont know how on earth Lynda and her family coped with things. I did find it difficult to look at the photos at the back of the book as the changes in Lynda are obvious as her illness progressed. Im glad I read it though.

A world of understanding and sadness

A wonderful book which I wasn’t sure I wanted to read at first, but am so glad I did. Written very sympathetically and with such humour on a really sad situation. I will always Lynda as the Oxo mum, and its difficult to believe that this dreadful disease can cause so much pain and sadness. Lynda had the way to make it humourous – well done to her to grasp this and run with it.. A must read if you want to understand some wonderful human traits.

Brutally, refreshingly honest

 on 23 March 2017
By Mrs. S. A. Cooper
Lynda Bellingham sets her story out without a trace of self pity. Instead we get a breezy, honest account of her life as an actress, mother, wife and friend. I sobbed through the last two chapters which were heart wrenchingly sad.

A wonderful read.
