If you're looking for an academic biography of June Carter Cash this might not be the book for you. Son John tends to ramble and reemphasize the same strengths in his mother over and over. But it is well worth the (very easy) read. John paints a picture of a broken woman who found a sure foundation in Jesus and in her family's heritage. A beautiful tribute!! I'm very glad I read it!
I grew up listening to Johnny & June Carter Cash, my parents were fans. After the movie "Walk The Line" came out, I found myself wanting to learn more about these people who were so much a part of my childhood. This book, written by their son John Carter Cash, tells the story of June the singer/songwriter, June the daughter, June the mother, June the Friend, and of course June the wife of Johnny Cash. The book also shows us other sides of June, her pain, her faith, her humor, her love of her family and friend, her kindness, and her neverending trust in God. I came away after reading this book with a deep admiration for June Carter Cash, the woman.
