“I have always loved Loretta Lynn, but could never find her autobiography. Finally I discovered a copy at the library where my sister works downtown and asked her to pick it up for me. I read it quickly, in just a matter of hours, and I love her even more now! Most people know the bare bones of her story, but told through her own unique voice, this book is really a treasure.
Coal Miner's Daughter is a glimpse at the woman hiding behind the personality - the real woman. The book is written in Lynn's own words, and chock-full of southern colloquialisms that make you feel like she's sitting right there with you telling you her story. The writing weaves together the pieces of Loretta Lynn's life into a beautiful and inspiring memoir, giving the reader a look behind the legend to see what made her such a strong ans wise woman. ”
