For thirty years as a musician, Rosanne Cash has enjoyed both critical and commercial success, releasing a series of albums that are as notable for their lyrical intelligence as for their musical excellence. In this memoir, Cash writes ... about her upbringing in Southern California as the child of country legend Johnny Cash, and of her relationships with her mother and her famous stepmother, June Carter Cash. In her account of her development as an artist she shares memories of recording her own first album on a German label; working her way to success; her Nashville marriage to Rodney Crowell; her relationship with the country music establishment; taking a new direction in her music and moving to New York; motherhood; dealing with the deaths of her parents, in part through music; the process of songwriting; and her fulfillment with her current husband and musical collaborator, John Leventhal.--From publisher description.

This is a memoir, mostly about growing up as the daughter of a very famous star and becoming her own person. There are a lot of deaths in this book and at times it verges on the New Age. The writing is a little self-conscious but what comes through is that Rosanne is a very nice person with nothing negative to say about others. Recommended.

A touching account of her memories of her dad, her mom and siblings as well as both parents' second marriages. Rosanne proves herself an excellent writer with a gift for lighting up a sentence. She gives an interesting take on the music business as well as on her own struggle to find a voice and independence.
