Product Description

Synopsis

June Carter was born in the rugged mountains of Maces Springs, Virginia, to Ezra and Maybelle Carter, pioneers of country music. On stage from a very young age, June found her niche in the spotlight with her vivacious personality and down-home sense of humor. Her confidence and spirit were what attracted Johnny Cash to her in the late 1950s. On the road together, they quickly bonded. June was his helpmate and closest companion. They were married for forty years, through addiction and success, tragedy and triumph. "Anchored in Love" is an inside look into the life of June Carter Cash, through the eyes of her only child with Johnny Cash - John Carter Cash. With skillful prose, he reveals new information about the legendary woman through his tender memories and heartwarming stories.

Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very interesting and read it in a few days. John Carter Cash writes well and you get the feeling that he's a decent man. He writes with sensitivity and his writing shows that he must have loved his parents very much. However,I was astonished to read that June Carter was also addicted to drugs like Johnny and not sure that he should have disclosed this family secret. Also there was lots of detail about the rows June and Johnny had, which sort of dispels the myth that they were love's young dream. I was expecting more info about the Cash daughters, but it would seem from his account that they were mostly absent when he was growing up. The book is very sad at the end when June and Johnny die. Well worth a read if you're a fan of June Carter and Johnny Cash.

Anchored in Love.
This book is for followers of the life of Johnny Cash,the carter family and their music. It is written by Johnny and June's son John Carter Cash. It tells of the high spots and also of the low spots in their lives. The low spots were mainly caused by Cash's continued addiction to amphetamines, and how June coped with it. An interesting read for those that enjoy Johnny Cash's music.
