3.0 out of 5 stars Original 29 Aug 2013

Not quite what I expected but she had an original approach to writing. It lives up to the title too - despite the fame and fortune, her life was far from easy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet but something missing 27 Feb 2006
By E. Northrop - Published on
From everything I've read about the late author, she was an extraordinary, unique, extremely loving person. I have a feeling they don't make them like June Carter Cash anymore.

You can certainly hear her obviously sweet voice throughout this book, a collection of vignettes that are nearly all like little golden eggs.

There are times when the reader might be confused to some of the references unless the reader's familiar with country music, and has maybe read some other books about her life or the life of her husband, the late Johnny Cash.

The one thing I looked for but didn't find in this book was a little bit of a peek inside the courtship between she and Johnny. In fact, I admit to looking and missing that in both of Mr. Cash's autobiographies as well. It was such a huge part of their personas to leave out of their writings.

There are many lovely stories here, especially the ones she tells from her childhood; I think those were my favorite.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet anecdotes of June's life and times......... 12 April 2006
By A. Browning - Published on
I found this book at the library in the biography section and immediately picked it up. While not exactly a biography, it is still a good book. It contains 46 sweet anecdotes of June Carter Cash's life and times. Some from her childhood, her experiences on tour, her children and being Mrs. Cash top the list of favorite topics. She reminisces about her times with Elvis Presley and with Hank and Audrey Williams. If you can find it, this book is not to be missed!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Learning More About June and John 20 Jan 2007
By Mary Ellen - Published on
I enjoyed this book very much, especially the amazing and plentiful photographs. While reading, I felt as though I were in a personal conversation with June and her thoughts were bouncing all around. I know she was a person full of great energy but I wanted to say, "Hey, slow down a minute and let me get this straight!" I remember June and her family when I was much younger and watching them on tv. Always was a big Johnny Cash fan and after seeing "Walk The Line" with Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix, just had to read more about this famous couple.

3.0 out of 5 stars Closer to Heaven Than Nashville 19 Mar 2005
By Mcgivern Owen L - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"From the Heart" reminded this reviewer of "Bus Fare to Kentucky", the autobiography of country singer Skeeter Davis. What was anticipated here as a "Country" story got entwined in a religious message. FH is a series of vignettes/ short stories of Nashville folk and the Carter entourage. Those anticipating a linear progression of June's career may be disappointed. Those who like a moral to their country story should not be. Since my review of Skeeter's literary endeavor may have been a tad sarcastic, this reviewer will give June a pass: 3 stars. The country biography of choice remains "Country Sunshine", portraying the life of the late and great Dottie West.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth your investment 31 Mar 2014

No. It's poorly written. I'm sorry I bought this book. I thought it would be as interesting as Johnny Cash's biography's, but it is NOT at all.
