Publisher's Summary

"Elvis, you and I know the truth and unfortunately you’re not here to set the record straight. With this book, I will try to.…"
Elvis Presley and Graceland were fixtures in the life of Ginger Alden, having been born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. But she had no idea that she would play a part in that enduring legacy - as Elvis Presley’s fiancée, and his last great love. For over three decades Ginger has held the truth of their relationship close to her heart. Now she shares her unique story, and while a lot has been written about the King, the Elvis we meet in this long-anticipated memoir is a revelation.
In her own words Ginger details their whirlwind romance - from first kiss to his stunning proposal of marriage. She details his exploration of Eastern religions, his perception of being a "legend", his devotion to family and friends, and her attempt to know the insular group surrounding Elvis. And for the very first time she talks about the devastating end of it all, and the 50,000 mourners and reporters who descended on Graceland in 1977, exposing Ginger to the reality of living in the spotlight of a short, yet immortal, life.
Above it all, Alden rescues Elvis from the hearsay, rumors, and tabloid speculations of his final year by shedding a frank yet personal light on a very public legend. From a unique and intimate perspective, she reveals the man - complicated, romantic, fallible, and human - behind the enduring myth, a superstar worshipped by millions, and loved by Ginger Alden.

not believing most of this

the writing was fine I thought the reading was good. However I do not believe the most of the story for one thing anybody who knows Elvis are no anything about Avenue that Priscilla was the love of his life so just say that he never been in love before was pretty much a fabrication. to say she wanted to suck the record straight that I was was wonderful person but she portrayed him as a month stir and it abuser. I'm sorry I'm not buying most of this.

I enjoyed this but not much is new here.

Any additional comments?

I have been an Elvis fan since I was a small child. I remember where I was and how I felt shocked and a broken hearted to hear the news that he had passed away. As the years since then have passed I have read everything I could get my hands on about The King. <br/><br/>In this book I did not find anything enlightening or new to anything I have read before.<br/><br/>I dont feel that Ginger was the love of Elvis' life but I did appreciate her account of their life together. She read well and there is an honest feel about her side of the story. <br/><br/>

Couldn't switch this off!

I'm a huge Elvis fan. This is the first book that I've read that really paints a picture of the kind, generous, sensitive Person that Elvis was. Not the actor, not the musician but the actual person. At last someone who is not out to make money - Ginger comes across as elegant and truthful. It's so sad that they never had the opportunity to grow old together and Ginger often questions why she met Elvis and they shared happy times, but for too little time. I think Ginger was sent for Elvis to truly love and be loved in his last few months. Ginger was sent to care for him in a way that no one else would. Ginger was sent to listen, talk and pray with Elvis. And finally Ginger was sent to tell the world about the real man that was Elvis Presley.
