Born with Teeth
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
An actress's deeply moving account of the price and rewards of a passionate life.
At 22, Kate Mulgrew gave birth to a daughter. Having already signed the adoption papers, she was allowed only a fleeting glimpse of her child. Three days later, she returned to work as the star of a popular soap opera. Twenty years later, still haunted by the choice she had made, Kate went in search of the daughter she had given away.
We know Mulgrew for the strong women she's played--Captain Janeway on Star Trek; "Red" on Orange Is the New Black. Now, in her memoir, we meet the most inspiring and memorable character of all: herself. Raised in a large, eccentric Irish family, Mulgrew is mischievous, brave, wise, and a born storyteller. Weaving together the details of her upbringing and career with the romance, adventure, and heartbreak behind the scenes, BORN WITH TEETH is a breathtaking memoir of a life lived to the fullest.

A life well-lived and a book well-written
Admittedly I am biased being a fan of Kate Mulgrew's
work, but getting to know the woman behind the roles was an enlightening, sometimes painful process. This book left me inspired, emotionally wrecked and wanting more!
Born with teeth
Great book,could not put it down.Wished I had ever met this woman in life.....I don't think I put that book down for more than an hour....very intriguing....thank you for sharing...and I feel th hurt when she left her baby up for adoption .......
Thank you again....and you were the best mother you could have been....
While this is extremely well written and thoroughly engaging, the book ends simply because Ms. Mulgrew stopped writing. There is absolutely no sense of summing up ideas or wrapping things up — huge disappointment.
