PORTRAIT OF A SOAP STAR is the biography of daytime drama actress Emily McLaughlin, or better known to soap opera viewers as Nurse Jessie Brewer of GENERAL HOSPITAL. This biography is a portrait of her life which illustrates the laughter & the trauma that she experienced as a soap star for over 30 years. A great deal has been written about soap operas & the problems that are dealt with by the soaps including the identification that viewers feel with certain characters & their problems. It is the drama of human losses, triumphs & the prevailing human spirit, in which people search for values in need to relate them to themselves.
