“An outstanding book! The story demonstrates love, faith, values, integrity, gratitude, and forgiveness . . . there is a lot of wisdom to be gained here.”
– Ron Harman, Country Music Hall of Fame

Fans can order autographed hardcover and trade paperback editions HERE and wish Becky luck via her Facebook.
Beauty queen, professional dancer, competitive tennis player, wife to Country icon Jim Ed Brown, painter, television co-host, grandmother and more. It’s quite a tale for a gal who started life as the daughter of a chicken processor in rural Pine Bluff, Arkansas. From their first date,which she confesses Jim Ed pursued on a dare, to his decades-long career, to motherhood and through his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Becky and her man made their marriage work. And, while she confesses that sometimes it wasn’t easy, the evidence of love and a positive spirit shine through in the book’s 228 pages and in each of the 175 photographs.
Brown and collaborator Roxane Atwood cover every aspect of the couple’s lives. Honest and emotional – it’s all laid out here. “Oh, he was romantic and charming,” Becky fondly recalls. “After that first date he asked if he could call me again. And he did . . . again and again and again. We really did have a wonderful life together.” What Brown covers in the book – but neglects to mention in polite conversation – are the health challenges they both faced, the issue of fidelity and more. She credits her faith for sustaining her and gives thanks for life’s blessings. This is a woman of quiet, towering strength who embraces life in every way.
