Wish I'd known this book was over 30 years ago. I was truly not surprised by anything, except the fact that her husband clubbed a dog to death for barking. Just lost any respect for a man who is questionable in his treatment of his wife, people, and now animals. Uggghhh, disgusted.
Such an uplifting, inspiring book based on the life and career of the great Loretta lynn. Sissy spacek makes the book even more interesting due to her sounding very familiar to Loretta. Worth the listen or even a read great book!!!
