This was a well composed memoir about someone of whom I knew virtually nothing other than that she was Johnny Cash's daughter. She starts off with an anti-catholic diatribe (she was raised Catholic)which almost lost me from the start. I realize we are all entitled to our own beliefs and faith life, but she carried it farther than was necessary and it really didn't fit with her "balanced" assessments of other aspects of her life and people she knew. She lapsed into several more sentences about it right near the end of the book. Ironically, she sent all of her kids to Catholic schools, which she in no way tries to justify or explain. She just repeats several times the clearly parochial school names. I was left with a very favorable impression of her dad and step mother and an all right one of her.
