About the Book

Sunshine Girl: An Unexpected Life

Known for her outstanding performances on the groundbreaking television series "The Good Wife" and "ER," Julianna Margulies deftly chronicles her life and her work in this deeply powerful memoir.
As an apple-cheeked bubbly child, Julianna was bestowed with the family nickname “Sunshine Girl.” Shuttled back and forth between her divorced parents, often on different continents, she quickly learned how to be of value to her eccentric mother and her absent father. Raised in fairly unconventional ways in various homes in Paris, England, New York and New Hampshire, Julianna found that her role among the surrounding turmoil and uncertainty was to comfort those around her, seeking organization among the disorder, making her way in the world as a young adult and eventually an award-winning actress.
Throughout, there were complicated relationships, difficult choices and overwhelming rejections. But there were also the moments where fate, faith and talent aligned, leading to the unforgettable roles of a lifetime, both professionally and personally --- moments when chaos had finally turned to calm.
Filled with intimate stories and revelatory moments, SUNSHINE GIRL is at once unflinchingly honest and perceptive. It is a riveting self-portrait of a woman whose resilience in the face of turmoil will leave readers intrigued and inspired.
