The next psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Good Neighbors... Yes. The word that brought me such great joy and, eventually, such heartbreak. When Mark asked me out for the first time, I didn't have to think twice. I said, "Yes." When he asked me to marry him just a year later, the answer came as easily as the breath that followed it. "Yes." When he asked me to keep his secret, my response came too quickly. "Yes." Now, in front of a judge and jury, I'll be asked the question I never anticipated. "Did you know who the killer is?" The answer is second nature by now. "Yes." "Modglin's most complex, layered, emotional, dark, and shocking book yet." -Emerald O'Brien, Author of The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries

Born Lyova Haskell Rosenthal in New York City, actress Lee Grant spent her youth accumulating more experiences than most people have in a lifetime: from student at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse to member of the legendary Actors Studio; from celebrated Broadway star to Vogue “It Girl.” At age twenty-four, she was nominated for an Academy Award for Detective Story, and a year later found herself married and a mother for the first time, her career on the rise. And then she lost it all. Her name landed on the Hollywood blacklist, her offers for film and television roles ground to a halt, and her marriage fell apart. Finding reserves of strength she didn’t know she had, Grant took action against anti-Communist witch hunts in the arts. She threw herself into work, accepting every theater or teaching job that came her way. She met a man ten years her junior and began a wild, liberating fling that she never expected would last a lifetime. And after twelve years of fighting the blacklist, she was finally exonerated. With courage and style, Grant rebuilt her life on her own terms: first stop, a starring role on Peyton Place, and then leads in Valley of the Dolls, In the Heat of the Night, and Shampoo, for which she won her first Oscar. Set amid the New York theater scene of the fifties and the star-studded parties of Malibu in the seventies, I Said Yes to Everything evokes a world of political passion and movie-star glamour. Grant tells endlessly delightful tales of costars and friends such as Warren Beatty, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Sidney Poitier, and writes with the verve and candor befitting such a seductive and beloved star.

I want to give God all the glory for most because I could not have done it without him and my loving Jamyia, my grandbaby who was there all along, saying, "Write the book, Mom-Mom."

If God asked your permission before a blessing or hardship, how would you answer? Most would say yes to the blessing and no to the hardship, especially if it involved our children. Thankfully, God does not ask; rather, he gives us the gift of hindsightto look back and say yes to the hardship that made us who we are. Struggle produces more strengths than weaknesses, more courage than fear, and more resolve than complacency. Bookstores are filled with incredible stories of courage and overcoming insurmountable odds. No one wants to read about a person who was born, went to school, made average grades, got an average job, had an average family and died an average death concluding with an average funeral. We probably know lots of people like that, but there are no books about them. No, we want the stories of the average overcomers. We want to hear about the men, women, and families, just like ours, who have faced their own Goliath and won, because we want to believe, we too can muster the umph to make it through our own difficulties. I Would Have Said Yes chronicles an average family with above average determination, who are blessed by an incomprehensible and awesome God to see extraordinary miraclesone day at a time.
