A Skating Life: My Story

By Dorothy Hamill

“America’s Sweetheart” Dorothy Hamill grew up on the ice, working toward the dream she was to accomplish by age nineteen: winning Olympic gold in figure skating. But life was not the picture of perfection it appeared to be. Dorothy faced a painful inner struggle with depression that followed her from the time she was a young girl into adulthood. Months away from home to train and compete took a toll, yet little reprieve could be found in the tumultuous and fragile relationship she had with her parents. Dorothy went on to marry the man of her dreams, only to have the partnership end in heartache and a tragedy that almost pushed her to the breaking point. When a second failed marriage tried and tested Dorothy yet again, she found a remarkable strength in what she did have—her greatest love, daughter Alexandra. In this deeply moving and honest memoir, Dorothy opens up for the first time about love, family, courage, and what it means to truly win — both on and off the ice.
