Product Description

Review

The widow of Frank Sinatra delivers the goods in this intimate memoir of their years tiogether... Probing Sinatra's personality, she contrasts his polite manners and loyalty to friends with his feuds and booze-induced rants. Yet in the end, as she sees it, 'Frank was the most romantic man I ever met,' and that feeling permeates the pages throughout. (Publishers' Weekly)

An engaging read (Mail on Sunday)

Barbara Sinatra, the singer's final - and longest-serving - wife, has written a revealing memoir of their fiery days and nights (Telegraph)

At its heart, this autobiography is a simple story of an enduring love affair, and the unprecedented glimpse is less about the man who has already been dissected in dozens of books, and more about a woman whom the reader quickly discovers is quite interesting in her own right . . . Frank Sinatra lived 82 years, dying in Barbara's arms more than a decade ago. After reading this book, it's easy to conclude that he was the lucky one for finding such a strong, wise and fun-loving soul mate. (Denver Post)

Barbara Sinatra has turned in a genuine love story about the man with whom she shared a life. (Chicago Sun Times)

Book Description

Barbara Sinatra tells how a gangly kid in pigtails from Bosworth, Missouri became the fourth Mrs Frank Sinatra - a marriage that lasted more than 20 years

1.0 out of 5 stars The Tender Trap 20 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If ever there was a biography that painted a picture as the artist wanted to see it, it is this one. So, Frank never had 2 daughters or grand-children that he adored? Read this book and you won't find one word about them - in fact, their names don't even appear once !
When I first read Tina Sinatra's book entitled 'My Father's Daughter', I wondered if there was some exaggeration about her view of her step-mother. This book does nothing to make me feel that the last Mrs Sinatra was all she makes out she was.
The book is mostly slanted to all the 'good works' she has done and, although her husband covered most of the costs of donations, she seems to take the glory.
I do not think this book is a truthful or fair account of Frank's last 20 or so years of life and I recommend anyone who is really interested to read James Kaplan's 'FRANK' which documents his life up until 1954 and to wait for the second part due in 3 years or so where I am sure we will get the real story of those later years.
Above all Frank was an 'honest' man, this is not the book he would have wanted written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 2 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover
Sadly I cannot agree with the other reviewers.
I have been a life long fan of Frank Sinatra & his music, & I have enjoyed a number of books already written about him - the good, the bad & the ugly!
However there hasn't been a book written by someone so close to the great man so I was really looking forward to this & even broke my own rules by buying the hard back.
In essence I thought that this book was badly written & vacuous, focusing too much on Barbara & her life (which seems to be a series of tedious name drops & not what I bought the book for, lovely lady as she seems to be).
I so wanted to enjoy this but I ended up skimming through the chapters to reach the end.
Not for me. Sorry.

Wonderful autobiography by Barbara Sinatra - I relished reading every page of this book and got through it like lightening ...I love Frank Sinatra and have read a few biographies on him including the infamous Kitty Kelly book ;0..this one was a real insight to his life with Barbara - The exciting era's of the 50's/60's and 70's and the people/stars they were close to/the high life all described so brilliantly ..such a shame though that Sinatra's kids are barely mentioned there is obviously a frosty relationship there between his children and Barbara.....I did notice that Barbara was omitted from the Frank Sinatra musical I saw a few years back that Nancy had produced...families eh!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 12 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book that arrived on time. But it painted a picture of Barbara Sinatra that wasn't quite believable and anyone reading Christina Sinatra's version will see why.|

This was such a good book. I loved reading about Barbara Sinatra. She seems such a lovely lady. She loved Frank very much and they were very happy together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting if bland 29 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Obviously this covers the end of Sinatra's life, and she acts the dutiful wife who is even prepared to renounce her own religion for Frank. She gives a lot of cover to her charitable works and achievements but rarely mentions if at all her relations with Frank's children. I am a bit sceptical about the early stages when she was still married to Zeppo and if she is telling the whole story. A bit like Henry viii and Katherine Parr, she is the last love who comforts him when he is looking for a steady life in his declining years. Personally I would find the gifts a bit excessive and unnecessary to prove affection but if someone gave me a Cadillac I would not say no. Strange they did not mention meeting Harold Wilson when he was PM. If as some are now saying, he fathered a late child by Mia Farrow it must change the whole complexion of the story. Frank Jnr, disputes story anyway.

A decent book, mildly interesting and, as you would expect, scandal fee.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent if not five star biography 3 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't expect an expose tell-all biography but this is a thoroughly sanitised version. Mrs. Sinatra sticks to her life with her husband and tells you about her luxurious pampered life style. The jewels, clothes , travels, holidays,houses etc
What happened to Sinatras children.? His son is mentioned a few times, but his daughters are as if they never existed. She mentions her own son frequently. Well I guess it is her biography.
