Few people know that Marilyn Monroe had a sister, and even fewer know the story of their 25-year-long relationship. Berniece and Norma Jeane were half sisters who learned of each other when Berniece was 19 and Norma Jeane was 12. They began a relationship that lasted until Marilyn's death in 1962. Features never-before-published photos and letters.

Really nice photos I had never seen of the young Marilyn. The text wanders a bit and could have been better with some good editing. Marilyn fans will forgive the flaws and add this to their collection. The vulnerable Norma Jeane shines through looking for approval and validation...a legend in the making!Was this review helpful?

This is, without question, the best book I have read on Ms. Monroe. It is touching, straight forward, and to the point. Marilyn was a person with a tender heart, caught up in the world of money and show buisness. There are very few thrills and chills here. It is the emotional, honest recollection that a family has about this remarkable woman. You will fall in love with her.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book really was something else! It was such a good book that I read it twice--It was really great to read a book about Marilyn without all those bells and whistles. Marilyn's half-sister, Bernice, and Marilyn's niece, Mona Rae, really touched a spot that so few others who have claimed to 'know' Marilyn have.Was this review helpful?
