I read this book after many a year of loving the Beatles expecting something very personal, in depth and great. That is exactly what I found. Cynthia gives a marvellous account of her time with John and towards the end, when John left her for Yoko, her accounts are not bitter. It has been many years for her to try to forgive and understand him, which I suspect makes for such a fabulous read. Although the story is only one sided and sadly the truth from John will never be known, it is really a great book and I spent every waking hour reading! I really would recommend it to anyone remotely interested in the Beatles or John Lennon. Fantastic book and well worth a read!
