“This is the story of a woman striving for success in the world of country music; a story of sacrifice, success, sadness, forgiveness, of following June Carter’s dictum, “Press on ,” and never losing faith.”
As far as I know, this may be the first book written about Willie Nelson by one of his wives. I might be wrong, though. It’s not just about Willie; she writes about growing up and her young entry into the entertainment business. She started performing to help feed her family when she was four; and married for the first time at 15. She writes so fondly about her favorite guitar Baby.
