Overview

"Outrageous, breathless, voluble, fast-moving, funny . . . and always mercilessly candid." Chicago Tribune.
For eight glorious years, Naomi Judd and daughter Wynonna lived the American dream. Signed by RCA in 1983 after a rare live audition, they became country music's most honored and successful women -- winning six Grammys and selling more than fifteen million albums.
Then the discovery of a life-threatening liver disease forced Naomi to retire. The Farewell tour of the Judds broke America's heart and ended one of the most beloved country music acts of all time.
But Naomi never gave up. And here, at last, is her story, as touching as any of her songs: the true story of a mother and daughter who sang like angels and fought like devils, but loved each other through struggle, tragedy and triumph.

Now the bestselling autobiography of the country music artist is a four-hour NBC-TV miniseries. From humble beginnings to superstar fame, Naomi Judd tells the story of her and her daughter Wynona's rise to country music stardom. She also tells the story of her emotional exit from the stage of country music performing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally scheduled for November 1992 (see Prepub Alert, LJ 8/92), then rescheduled for June 1993 (see Prepub Alert, LJ 2/1/93), this book will finally be published in November 1993.
Ilene Cooper
Country singer Naomi Judd's life story will make a great TV movie--and it's not a bad book. Born and raised in Ashland, Kentucky, Naomi envisioned a bright future for herself, but an unplanned pregnancy intervened, and several years later, she was divorced with two small children to support. The family lived like gypsies, yet Naomi was determined to become a nurse, which she did. Along the way, there were bad men and hard times, but it was Naomi's love of singing, which she passed on to her oldest daughter, and her dreams for the future that really got the family through. After success came, the Judds lived the American dream for eight years until Naomi's serious bout with hepatitis forced her to retire from the act. Using a combination of modern-day medicine and mind-body therapies, Naomi managed her disease into remission. Her story has the almost mythic pull of all the best rags-to-riches sagas--love, death, poverty, wealth, and faith all play their familiar roles--and, surprisingly for a star bio, it's quite pithily written. Expect huge demand, fueled by the reams of publicity Judd's publisher will generate.

    This book was a beautiful testament to the Judds, their music, and their love.

    I was so touched by the time I finished this book that I wanted to write Naomi Judd a letter and tell her so. What a story about life she wrote! I cried and cried by the end--what a sacrifice she had to make for her health after working so hard to build a fabulous career. It was absolutely heartbreaking. I love the way she shares her faith, her thoughts on communicating through music, and what she learned about mental and physical health. I borrowed the book, but liked it so much that I'm going to order a copy to keep and to pass around to my friends. Before reading this book, I had one Judd CD, but now I want to buy every one of the Judd's and Wynonna's CDs and find a video of their Farewell concert. I'm so impressed with their gift of music--Wynonna's is truly amazing.

    A Must Read for Everyone!

    I found the book most entertaining. I loved her folklore expressions. My favorite was 'Never engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person.' There were so many shocking details about her life. I highly recommend this book to people who think that they have been through it all and can't seem to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe me when I tell you this woman has been through it all and because of her undying faith has not only seen the light at the end of the tunnel, but is now enjoying being at the center of that very light.
