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

 on 22 October 2014
By Abi
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.

Sad but also uplifting account of Linda’s journey with cancer

I had not read any of Lynda’s previous books and when purchasing this did not realise that the whole book only covered the last few years of her life from her diagnosis with cancer.

Uplifting, funny & inspirational last words from Lynda

By Steve Cann
Having recently read Lynda’s absorbing & fascinating autobiog ‘Lost & Found’, it was a logical step to pick this book up next, which continues where the previous book left off in 2011.

A story worth reading

 on 31 October 2014
By Jasper
This brave lady was definitely trying to help others by writing this book. Her story was told in a straight forward way which explained her situation from the when the illness was first diagnosed right up until just those few weeks prior to her passing from this life. Many questions that possibly a good number of her readers would have liked to ask were answered frankly and openly whilst being able to keep a balance by including humorous anecdotes. The book was tempered by stories prior to becoming ill which gave a flavour of her personality and aspirations and thanks for the life she had shared with those she loved.

A Very Strong and Wonderful Lady

 on 4 December 2014
By F. A. Perry
This book has had a profound affect on me, Lynda is a very womanly woman. She understands people and their needs even when she is terminally ill. The centre of the family recognising the needs of others before her own. Women know how to gently influence situations by treading careful paths through family problems, influencing, sharing, challenging but always with love, humour and recognising the needs of others.

So much courage!

I give this book five stars for the courage it must have taken to write it, and the courage it may perhaps give to others who have shared some of the experiences. I am sorry Lynda evidently felt disappointed with her acting career, but I think in this book she has left a lasting and more important memorial than any portrayal of a fictional character. In the end her great gift is being able to communicate and connect with others. There is nothing sophisticated here, the writing is very ordinary, but there is so much life and heart in the book! I felt a little anxious before reading it, but it’s good she included so much description of happy times as well as about the terrible details of her illness. Whether you loved her or were indifferent, this book is so worth reading. A light shines through on every page. I have so much admiration for her and how she managed to complete this and leave behind something so meaningful, not just for her family, but for us too.

THERE’S SOMETHING I’VE BEEN DYING TO TELL YOU ( book)

 on 16 November 2014
By Saphira
I have yet to read the book through. Dear Lynda Bellingham was a friend of mine introduced to me by a close friend years ago. She was a vibrant and cheerful lady. Sadly her death although expected was inappropriate for such a lovely lady so early in her life. This book will help others who have had cancer or who are going through the awful illness, I believe. She brings the truth forward and was not afraid to report her thoughts and to show photos of herself whilst being treated for cancer. How brave! I did hear that ITV may be showing her OXO adverts again, at Christmas time. Somehow those adverts were so warm and family oriented and all of us who watched them did find them homely and caring. I will think of her if the adverts are shown and congratulate her for her frankness and warmth in the book.

A very thought provoking and moving story.

 on 6 January 2016
By Mrs. Susan Hawcroft
I rated this book as 5 stars because it takes a heck of a lot to face ones looming death, but to be able to describe the journey’s end in the way Linda Bellingham has done, in this very moving account of her final months, is astounding. She has been very truthful and honest in her writing about an illness that most people struggle to come to terms with let alone talk about. Her honesty with her family is incredible and inspiring.

An inspiring book.

By Julie C
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.

What a wonderful, insightful, but often sad and at times funny book. The lady had class and guts alright, fighting and struggling throughout her life for better acting parts and bringing up her sons alone and it has to be said, a better husband, and it was third time oh so very lucky, but it is her fight with cancer that this book mainly deals with.
