📙 Lady Blue Eyes: My Life with Frank by Barbara Sinatra, narrator Lorna Raver


4.1


Thirty years after she first heard his voice singing on the jukebox at her local drive-in, Barbara Ann Blakely heard Frank Sinatra take the wedding vows that began his fourth, final, and most enduring marriage. In Lady Blue Eyes, Barbara Sinatra's first public love letter to the husband she adored, she celebrates the sensational singer, possessive mate, sexy heartthrob, and devoted friend that she found in Frank. For more than two decades, Barbara was always by his side, traveling the globe and hosting glittering events for their famous friends, including presidents, kings, queens, Hollywood royalty, and musical legends. Among them were Sammy Davis, Jr., Princess Grace of Monaco, Bob Dylan, and Ronald Reagan. Each night, as Frank publicly wooed his bride with love songs from a concert stage, she'd fall in love with him all over again. From her own humble beginnings in a small town in Missouri to her time as a fashion model and her marriage to Zeppo Marx, Barbara Sinatra reveals a life lived with passion, conviction, and grace. A founder of the Miss Universe pageant and a onetime Vegas showgirl, she raised her only son almost single-handedly in often dire circumstances until, after five years of tempestuous courtship, she and Frank committed to each other wholeheartedly. In stories that leap off the page, she takes us behind the scenes of her iconic husband's legendary career and paints an intimate portrait of a man who was variously generous, jealous, witty, and wicked. Coupled with revealing insights about many of Frank's celebrated songs, this is much more than the story of a showbiz marriage. It is a story of passion and of a deep and lifelong love. ©2011 Barbara Sinatra (P)2011 Random House Audio

"Fascinating Story of Love Fame and Fortune"

I highly recommend "Lady Blue Eyes" as it kept me mesmerized hour after hour. Great anedotes about all the Hollywood celebs and pals, the antics of Sinatra and the deep love he had for Barbara. Lorna Raver did an outstanding job of narrating and there was never a dull moment. I have the greatest urge to play my entire Sinatra Reprise Collection on my iPod tonight.

"Fantastic entertaining uplifting book"

Barbara Sinatra tells her funny, heartwarming story of life with Zeppo Marx, Frank Sinatra and many other movie stars who were friends in their crowd. She tells about Judy Garland, Kirk Douglas, Prince Rainier, Princess Grace and others. She knew how to navigate life married to an entitled rich person namely Frank Sinatra, knowing what to do when they showed up for a dinner party in his honor and he decided not to go at the last minute. It makes for an interesting story, one that keeps the listener hooked to the very last chapter. The narration is excellent.
