I was excited about this book when it first came out and couldn't wait to read it. The Judds were at the height of their fame when Naomi dropped the bomb that she had to retire because of her health.
I was really disappointed because i thought the book was about BOTH of them, only it seems like Naomi and only Naomi was the star of this show. I really kind of lost some respect for her with some of the stories she told, especially the total and blatant lie about who Wynonna's biological father was.

Naomi Judd is such a strong woman & capable of doing so many different things. I did not know she was a certified nurse. Interesting story, especially since I'd just watched a documentary on tv with her & Wynonna. I'd like to read Ashley's book too, because she Was left behind a lot.

Was a good book until I found out later Naomi Judd lied about some of the "true" information in the book. That was not appropriate.

Surprising! I actually made it through a Bio. which I have never been able to do before. This book brought back memories from my childhood. I was raised on country music and loved the Judds when I was alittle girl. This poor woman had more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. But in the end she showed how brave she was. Through her life she fought to survive and to acheive her dreams with courage, strength, love and most of all FAITH! She never lost her faith in God. She took good care of her two ...more

If you enjoy listening to the Judds; you will enjoy reading their life story. It's written where you aren't lost and can follow it. Seeing an inside to their lives. Not so sure if you don't like their music if you would enjoy reading about them.

this book was one of the required reading choices at an acting school naomi and her daughter ashley had also attended. It is so inspiring, and I don't think I've ever heard a Judds song. I haven't given it a five though- I read in interview with Ashley Judd that she was going to write a follow up to this autobiography, entitled, "The Truth". And in Wynonna's autobio, her biological daddy is someone else. Am anticipating Ashley Judd's auto.

I absolutely adore the Judd's, so it was interesting to get such a personal insight into their lives. That being said, I had a hard time staying focuses sometimes, because although I adore Naomi Judd, she isn't a gifted writer. I had to give it a good review, just because I really enjoyed learning more about one of my favorite families!

I borrowed this book from my mom at one point. (She loves biographies.) It started out okay and interesting, but I lost interest after Naomi and Wynonna start to make it big. It was more interesting for me to see what their lives were like before they were famous I guess. Anyway, it was just sort of okay for me...

I read this quite a few years ago but remember really enjoying it. It's a rags-to-riches true story about mother-daughter struggles, trying to get in the country music business, and staying true to oneself.

I loved this book. Some of it shocked and some thrilled me. To see what Naomi and Wynonna had to over come to get where they are today. I would recommend this book

I recall The Judds being popular in country music but was never a big fan. Naomi's telling of the journey to stardom is interesting but at times gets a bit preachy, especially towards the end once ill with hepatitis. I could have done with less quotes from the Bible.
