BOOK REVIEW

STILL WOMAN ENOUGH - LORETTA LYNN                 

When we think of women in country music, Loretta Lynn has to be at the top of the list.  We all loved the book and the movie, The Coalminer's Daughter.  In this new book, Loretta discusses the thirty-five subsequent years of her life including several tragedies that have taken place.  Loretta discusses earlier times in her life also - some things she felt were left out the first time.

Loretta discusses her relationship with her husband, Doo, from the violent arguments to the good times with him.  She has a chapter called "How Do You Get Ready for Death?" which details the night Doo passed away.

Loretta has a chapter written about the loss of her son, Jack.  She describes it as the darkest time of her life.

Another said time in Loretta's life was when Conway Twitty died.  She stated that it left her numb as the world moved around her.

Aside from the tragic times in Loretta's life, there are several chapters that are fun to read.  Loretta writes the same way she speaks.  She doesn't hold back on anything in this book - she tells it as it happened.  If you are a country music fan, you will love this book written by such a great lady.  Even if you are not "into" country music, you will enjoy the story of Loretta Lynn because she is such a down to earth country girl.  This book is a delight - because Loretta is still woman enough!
