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.

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.

If your wanting something that can draw you in, stir your emotions and make you more appreciate of every moment in your life, this is worth listening too, I bought it brand new when it was first released and it's worth re-play value. Wish it were a Nook Book though.
