This is a true story of retired music manager Ron Eckerman's last few years of life. Ron was haunted for several years by a recurring nightmare about the date of his death. After his wife left him on their anniversary, he felt that his life was over and he would die alone. He then found true love and happiness through a strange twist of fate with Carolyn, 18 years his junior. He put the fears of his dream behind him and began his new life with his new love.

The way Ron told the story, I felt like I had known these guys..just down home people from the south like me. I remember hearing about the plane crash, I was getting up and ready for school that morning.. Wow how devastating the news was that dreadful day...
I would and will definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves the lynyrd skynyrd band! Or just fans of southern rock period!
The book is well written and Ron brings it to life with such detail of what it took to keep this band on the road....a great read!
