    Highly recommended for all music lovers!

    As a music lover, I loved reading about the inspiring stories of people such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. As a mum of three, with limited time to read, I particularly enjoyed the format which was short and easy to read but uplifting at the same time. It has encouraged me to dust off my guitar and pick up where I left off many years ago!
