Abstract:

"And you know what I say to people who ask, 'What do you do when all the odds are against you? ' I say 'You keep going. You just don't stop. No matter, if there's one slap to the face, turn the other cheek. And the hurt you're feeling? You can't think about what's being done to you now, or what has been alone to you in the past. You just have to keep going.' Tina Turner--the long-reigning queen of rock 'n' roll and living legend--sets the record straight about her illustrious career and complicated personal life in this eye-opening and compelling memoir. From her early years in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her rise to fame alongside Ike Turner, to her phenomenal success in the 1980s and beyond, Tina candidly examines her personal history--her trials, her triumphs, and everything in between. She shares stories from her years working alongside the biggest names in music--Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, David Bowie, Beyoncé--and she writes about unexpectedly meeting the love of her life in 1986 and marrying him twenty-seven years later. As Tina says, 'Sometimes the greatest happiness we know comes just when we are able to appreciate it.' Faced with an array of health issues and family tragedies in recent years, Tina reflects on her own extraordinary life's journey, finding grace and purpose even in the darkest hours. My Love Story is an explosive and inspiring story of a woman who dared to break any barriers put in her way. Emphatically showcasing Tina's signature blend of grit, energy, heart, and soul, this memoir is as enthralling and moving as any of her greatest hits."--Jacket.
