Judith's life story from her early years is fascinating, moving and full of a spirit of her warm pesronality and easy charm.
From her early years, Judith has suffered with a chronic lung condition called bronchiecstasis, leaving her with only 1/3rd lung capacity. It is truly amazing to see and hear Judith sing out with such power, feeling and accuracy - even with her lung condition.
Through local fame as a teenage jazzer, the obvious worldwide fame with the Seekers, and her superb solo works, Judith Durham has consistently proven that she is a true Superstar in every sense. How excellent is it then that we continue to be graced with such a wonderful singer. She has no comparison, though there are some excellent female vocalists out there.
Judith is an outstanding singer, songwriter and performer. She has a loyal and continually expanding fan base, who admire her for being a Diva without the attitude to go with it.
Take each chapter as a footstep in the life of one of the world's very greatest artists, you cannot fail to be moved when you share Judith's personal losses of her parents and her beloved husband, pianist, Ron Edgeworth.
Life moves on and so has Judith who continues to deliver her performance as if you were a guest in her home - the audience always feels at one with her captivating them in rapt attention for a couple of hours in concert.
This is a must read book

When my mother first told me she had booked tickets to see Judith Durham I was not impressed and thought it was not my kind of thing. I was wrong the concert I saw in Manchester was amazing from start to finish, I was as they say a new fan and needed more.
I bought the book for my Mum as she had been a fan for a while, knowing full well I was going to read it as well.
The book is a true encounted of Judith's life and you feel you get to know her on a personal level with this book.
Recommened reading for any fans of Judith or The Seekers.

A very well written book about the life and career of Judith Durham.
She was a member of the populair Australian group The Seekers.
Still succesfull as a solo singer with a career of her own.
Well worth reading.

Story of the best female singer of our time. Well written by Graham Simpson with forwards by Lynn Redgrave and others. (Amazon incorrectly lists Lynn Redgrave as the author).

This is the story of Judith Durham the finest female popular music singer of the 20th an 21st centuries. I was fortunate enough to meet her and The Seekers in the mid 1960's and on other occasions and this book details her life in considerable detail. It is an absolute must for all of her loyal fans who cannot get enough of her music and her voice and who hope for her singing return to the UK either as part of The Seekers or as a solo performer. Fingers crossed.

Derek Mead.

I bought this book as a gift for my stepfather, a Judith Durham fan, and it went down very well.
