Great book and did not duplicate from her first book. Wrote many additions and facts that were never written before. Was very pleased with all of the book.

This is a great book to furture you study into disfuntional relationships
I read this book and realized just how dysfunctional a relationship could be. I majored in criminal justice and Psychology . I love doing research into real relationships and one like this just shocked me In police work, you see many dysfuntional situations but I would have never imagined someone like Loretta Lynn could have stayed in a relationship with suck a horrible man. It is text book phychology but to conect it to such a person just shocked me. It is a book that will hold your attention and I bet you will want to read it all over again, I know I do. It is totally shocking what a human/woman will put up with just to stay in a marriage???Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Experience Every Emotion
I seldom laugh out loud at a book (tho it does happen occasionally) .... I've been known to cry .... but THIS book pulled every emotion I have ..... I laughed outloud; I cried puppy dog tears; I felt anger; I felt compassion ...... and I was completely in awe of her strength. I grew up on Loretta Lynn music on Saturday (would that be 'saturdee') afternoons, but in latter years, haven't listened to as much country music. I saw 'Coal Miner's Daughter' but never read the book. After reading an excerpt on bn.com, I was intrigued and ordered the book. I love her southern dialect. I could NOT put it down. She is TRULY a gem in America .... not just country music .... or women in country music ... but for all women or people everywhere. I salute you, Mrs. Lynn!!!!!!Was this review helpful?

A GOOD READ
This is a fast, easy-to-read book. While I'm a fan of all different types of music and read a wide variety of books, I do enjoy biographies and autobiographies about people who are perhaps a little 'different' than the norm. And Loretta certainly was (and is!) different than the norm. Her writing style is just like her speaking voice--humorous, frank and full of character. I applaud her strength and courage in hard times. Although this book jumped around quite a bit from subject to subject or different timeframes, I will recommend this one!Was this review helpful?

Thier is only one Coal Miners Daughter and She is Still Woman Enough
As Bette Davis once said in a movie.... fasten your seatbelt it's going to be a bumpy ride. Well Ms. Loretta's life has been a roller coaster of many ups and downs twist and turns and she shares many of those expierences in this 2nd book she wrote. I cant wait for volumes 3,4 and 5 to come out for i am sure she has lived enough to fill em all. If you are ready to feel all the differnt emotions you have then this is the book of the year to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

STILL THE UNDISPUTABLE QUEEN OF COUNTRY MUSIC
I have been a fan of LORETTA since I was 13 years old and saw the film Coal Miner's Daughter...she has been a major inspiration for me and continues to be...Not only because I am a singer too but because of WHO she is, a tender, sincere, strong, unstoppable person. She is REAL and can still out sing any new 'country' female singer Nashville can toss out there. I love you LORETTA and you will always have a place in my heart..Thank you for giving us new music, an OUTSTANDING new book and hopefully another Oscar winning movie...I highly advise everyone to get a copy of STILL WOMAN EMOUGH.......Mr. Louis Bia....Lawrence, KSWas this review helpful?
