Sultry stage siren by night, intellectual chameleon by day, she worked her way to the top of Nashville’s underground entertainment scene without ever succumbing to drugs, alcohol or bitterness, and through it all never lost her heart. When love walked into her new life in the form of a handsome young Army private, it seemed everything had at last come together. Then at the pinnacle of her career, as she was crowned Tennessee Entertainer of the Year in front of hundreds of adoring fans, her love was murdered in his sleep sixty miles away by bigoted fellow soldiers, sparking a national controversy that resonates still.
Whether ablaze in the dazzle of the spotlight or haunting the woods of Tennessee in flannel and pigtails, Calpernia lives her life with the humor and spirit of a woman who can face anything and still move forward with hope intact.

This story was compelling and heart breaking. After seeing the Showtime movie 'Soldier's Girl' which chronicled the relationship of Calpernia and Barry I had ot purchase her book. The love that they had for each other is inspiring. The story of her past, her love, her future, and her life as both a man and a woman was written beautifully.Was this review helpful?

A mixture of sex violence and control, a photo reflection of our times. Capernia and Barry's relationship, should have been just that, their relationship. If people placed as much energy on their own problems, and their lives, this would be a better world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
