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 learned alot about the Carter family in this book. I also found out the conflicts between these 2 larger than life stars. I would recomend this book to anyone who loved Johnny Cash or June Carter or the Carter family
I enjoyed this book. Although John Carter uses several quotes and passaged from his mother's book, I found this book to be a look at both the good and bad in June Carter's life. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about not only country music legends but also reading about a remarkable woman with strong faith and convictions who loved her family with all her heart.
