BELOVED TELEVISION STAR: Julianna Margulies has been a decades-long favorite for her outstanding dramatic work in such long running series as The Good Wife and ER, both of which featured her in lead roles (and are now available for streaming on Amazon/CBS All Access and Hulu, respectively), as well as guest roles in The Sopranos and a recent arc on Billions.
REVEALING MOMENTS: Written entirely by the author in skillful prose, Julianna deftly explores and discusses never-before-revealed moments in both her personal and professional life, including the story behind getting her life-changing role on ER and walking away from a decade-long, unhealthy romantic relationship.

“Sunshine Girl is a probing, fearless, beautifully written coming-of-age story. The word that comes to mind is ‘transcendent.’ Julianna Margulies has transcended a complicated childhood, transcended a difficult ten-year relationship, transcended her own demons, transcended fame itself to become whole and wise. I loved this book.”—Dani Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author of Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love
“It should be no surprise that Julianna writes with the same insight, precision, and kindness with which she imbues the characters she portrays. This book is a revelation. Be prepared to gasp!”—Alan Cumming, New York Times bestselling author of Not My Father’s Son: A Memoir
“I read this book in one day and truly loved it. Julianna Margulies’s level of introspection is remarkable. Personality and destiny are largely forged from childhood and family, yet few of us are able to weave that journey into a compelling memoir that examines the harder parts of our lives with such honesty. Margulies’s engrossing story of the difficulties and nuances of growing up between two households paints a candid but loving portrait of the brutal insecurities of adolescence and the unbreakable bonds of all imperfect families. I rooted for her at every turn, especially during her present chapter.”—Lee Woodruff, New York Times bestselling author of In an Instant: A Family’s Journey of Love and Healing
“Sunshine Girl is at once a tender coming-of-age story and a deeply personal look at a young woman making sense of the world against a chaotic and peripatetic childhood. We are all so fortunate that Julianna Margulies discovered her passion. You will feel inspired by the way she has lived her life: with grit, grace, and gratitude.”—Katie Couric
“[An] intriguing tale…This book is more about the strength of the storytelling than the star power of the author…. What the author shares and doesn’t is deliberate, all offered to advance the fascinating story she wants to tell. It’s the mark of a talented storyteller…. Margulies’s unflinching quest to explain her life makes her well-crafted memoir compelling whether you know her roles or not.”—Kirkus Reviews
“[Sunshine Girl is] full of piquant anecdotes…and subtle, evocative character studies…. The result is an entertaining and revealing portrait.”—Publishers Weekly
