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

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.

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!
