A new memoir from internationally renowned musician Liona Boyd.
Few people have lived such a whirlwind, romantic, international life as Liona Boyd. She performed all over North America with Gordon Lightfoot, serenaded dozens of heads of state, and dated Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau (Pierre, that is). But her story didn't end there. In a new memoir, Liona details her 2004 divorce and the roller coaster ride that followed. Not long after the breakup of her marriage, she was struck by a debilitating diagnosis and lost her ability to perform. After six years spent relearning and rebuilding, in 2011 she returned to live in Canada and create five new albums as a singer, composer, and (once again) guitarist.
Liona recounts her love affairs, her health battles, her spiritual journeys, her personal and musical struggles, and her greatest triumphs. Writing with candour and passion, she gives her fans a behind-the-scenes tour of her world.
