This intimate, touching and astoundingly down to earth and well written portrayal of June Carter Cash is indeed a son's honourable tribute to the memory of his mother. His writing style is clear and honest and you get a sincere feeling that you are part of the life going on behind the walls of the House of Cash. An invitation so rare that one cannot but follow the lead and compassionately feel the love, struggles, joy, and sadness the Carter Cash family endured. Without being sentimental, John Carter Cash manages to share with us a remarkable and rich life-story about an admirable woman, wife and mother. For this I am ever so thankful.
I admit that if it wasn't for the mesmerising movie 'Walk the line', the biopic of Johnny Cash and June Carter, I would most likely not have discovered, let alone reading this book. But I am grateful that I did; I learned that there was a lot more to June than merely the shadow of the man in black.
