    Loretta Lynn s second autobiography covers some of the same tracks as Coal Miner s Daughter and goes on to look at Lynn s life after walking into the sunset with her husband, Doo, at the end of the film The stories and folksiness are just what you would expect from Loretta, and while certain sections drag a bit, overall this book is a sincere, readable, and often revealing look at one of my favorite country music stars.

    Decided I didn t want to read the whole book just a little so I read the first 20 or so pages not including the introduction and skimmed ahead to the end I like Loretta but really dislike her husband and can t stand or quite understand that she loved him despite how he was So I didn t want to read anyabout him or how she loved him and what she put up with I understand that she may not have had any real choice early on in the marriage and that by the time she was famous and had the money Decided I didn t want to read the whole book just a little so I read the first 20 or so pages not including the introduction and skimmed ahead to the end I like Loretta but really dislike her husband and can t stand or quite understand that she loved him despite how he was So I didn t want to read anyabout him or how she loved him and what she put up with I understand that she may not have had any real choice early on in the marriage and that by the time she was famous and had the money to be able to support herself she was already attached to him, married and unable to comprehend anything else I feel sorry for her in a way and I know she wouldn t want that Her writing style makes it seem like she s right in the room with you and she s talking to you one on one Warm, inviting, honest, explaining not excusing.Her life not only in Butcher Holler, but from the 40 s and married to an alcoholic, abusive, womanizer is so alien to me I can kind of understand that she stayed with her husband because that s just what you did especially when poor you had fewer choices when poor , you didn t leave him no matter what but part of me still can t comprehend it I feel sorry for her to have been married to such a man and it really bothers me As an autobiography I d say it s a good one, it really is inviting, warm I recommend this if you like Loretta Lynn, or if you ve read her Coal Miner s Daughter book If you want to read both books then read Coal Miner s Daughter book first since Still Woman Enough picks up after Coal Miner s Daughter, the book and the movie One of the better autobiographies I ve read

    Coal Miner s Daughter was one of my favorite movies, watched repeatedly when I was a kid because the movie theater was often my babysitter Even though I didn t listen to country music, I really enjoyed the film for the strong characters, compelling story and overall likability that Loretta s character had I also read the book on which it was based at some point years ago One day earlier this year, I caught part of the movie on TV and it reminded me of how much I loved it, and prompted me to s Coal Miner s Daughter was one of my favorite movies, watched repeatedly when I was a kid because the movie theater was often my babysitter Even though I didn t listen to country music, I really enjoyed the film for the strong characters, compelling story and overall likability that Loretta s character had I also read the book on which it was based at some point years ago One day earlier this year, I caught part of the movie on TV and it reminded me of how much I loved it, and prompted me to see if Loretta had written anything else So I ended up with this copy in hand and found a book that was in parts very interesting, and in parts disappointing.First off, Loretta still has that folksy, honest style Sometimes it s a bit too folksy the woman who helped her write it sprinkled it with poor grammar that I assume is an accurate representation of the singer who, while she has plenty of intelligence, didn t get much schooling The result both makes you hear Loretta s voice and makes you fear, the longer you read and thethe voice gets into your head, that you ll start saying them instead of those, done instead of did and so on Also, while I felt she was telling a story as honestly as she was willing to meaning I m sure there were still plenty of things she glossed over or left out, probably regarding her husband s atrocious behavior, but I can understand that However, I d get a little twinge anytime she referenced her age when she was married or had her first baby, and this came up several times in the book She always claimed she was married at 13 and very shortly after got pregnant, which made a poignant part of her story and I m sure figured into that story being compelling enough to make into a movie In 2012, it was discovered that she d lied about her age by about 3 years she was really just shy of 16 when she got married Since she started her music career after she was well into adulthood, I imagine she shaved those years off thinking she needed to seem as young as possible to succeed, and so she stuck with the lie when she wrote her first book Why she didn t feel she could come clean at that point I don t know, as she was already successful and famous Then, with this book, she just continued on It would ve been an ideal time to come clean, but nope, she wasn t having it This book came out a decade before her true age was discovered and made public, so since she didn t have to address that issue, she just stuck with what she d said all along It does take a little away from her tale, and how open you feel she s being, knowing she still couldn t own up to the fact that she shaved a few years off her age long ago It wouldn t even be that big of a deal if it weren t for how muchharrowing it made her life story seem Her story would ve been interesting even with the truth, but it revved up the drama and trauma a lot to think of her going through what she did with her husband starting at age 13 Being 15 is still young to get married, but it wasn t all that uncommon at that time and place As to the rest of the book, there are lots of interesting and funny stories, and it still seems like it d be a hoot to sit down for a chat with Loretta However, an awful lot of stories she shares here depict in greater detail how physically and emotionally abusive her husband could be Loretta talks about how, before she became a singer, Doo would just take off for a couple of weeks, probably on a bender of drinking and womanizing And she and the kids would rely on the charity of others and eating dandelion greens wtf to survive She comments on how Doo would spend money as he pleased and not worry about the family They owned a boat but wouldn t have bread to eat Doo owned camera equipment, but his wife and children are eating grass He never really seemed to change, either, not until the very end of his life when he was too sick to carry on as he had been He continued to burn through and waste her money when she was making plenty as a performer, so she always had to keep working hard, and he continued sleeping around, too One time she came back from the road and was home for a very short stay, so she asked Doo to please not drink as she was there for just one night He showed how much he thought of her and everyone else on the road by starting to drink as he drove her home from the airport This book has a lot of engaging insight for fans, whether you love country music and are interested in earlier days, or you just love Loretta Lynn, or you loved the movie Coal Miner s Daughter I do think reading this took away from some of the rough charm you felt Doo had in the movie sure, it showed he could be a horrible person, but he still seemed somewhat likable at times thanks to the acting skill of Tommy Lee Jones He doesn t come off that way in this book, and it makes you really sad for Loretta and her kids for what they went through with him I m sure they have fond memories of him, though, and that s likely what they try and focus on That s probably why Loretta s kids didn t want her to write this book, as she admits early on

    The first thing anyone should know about this book is that it may be triggering to anyone who has experienced domestic violence The review might be triggering too, so watch out.So, Loretta Lynn wrote this memoir at least 20 years after writing her famous Coal Miner s Daughter She wrote this one after her husband, Doolittle, died Doolittle basically acted like a piece of shit for decades, hitting Loretta, cheating on her without even trying to hide it, and emotionally abusing her and their kid The first thing anyone should know about this book is that it may be triggering to anyone who has experienced domestic violence The review might be triggering too, so watch out.So, Loretta Lynn wrote this memoir at least 20 years after writing her famous Coal Miner s Daughter She wrote this one after her husband, Doolittle, died Doolittle basically acted like a piece of shit for decades, hitting Loretta, cheating on her without even trying to hide it, and emotionally abusing her and their kids Loretta admits to hitting him back Dysfunctional all the way Of course, Loretta never left him, because she loved him, and the way she was raised, when you marry a man as a thirteen year old girl, that s for life, for better or for worse Yuck I also learned by reading this book that Loretta is in to god which didn t really surprise me and BOTH presidents Bush Gross The Bush part really caused me to lose any respect I had left for her.I m not sure why I read this book I felt like I needed to complete my Loretta Lynn memoir reading, I guess I ll never again be able to hear her music without thinking of her support for those Bush idiots
