The widow of Frank Sinatra delivers the goods in this intimate memoir of their years tiogether... Probing Sinatra's personality, she contrasts his polite manners and loyalty to friends with his feuds and booze-induced rants. Yet in the end, as she sees it, 'Frank was the most romantic man I ever met,' and that feeling permeates the pages throughout. (Publishers' Weekly)
An engaging read (Mail on Sunday)
Barbara Sinatra, the singer's final - and longest-serving - wife, has written a revealing memoir of their fiery days and nights (Telegraph)
At its heart, this autobiography is a simple story of an enduring love affair, and the unprecedented glimpse is less about the man who has already been dissected in dozens of books, and more about a woman whom the reader quickly discovers is quite interesting in her own right . . . Frank Sinatra lived 82 years, dying in Barbara's arms more than a decade ago. After reading this book, it's easy to conclude that he was the lucky one for finding such a strong, wise and fun-loving soul mate. (Denver Post)
Barbara Sinatra has turned in a genuine love story about the man with whom she shared a life. (Chicago Sun Times)

What was missing was any mention of his children or grandchildren...she wrote them out of his life in this book as I imagined she tried to do in real life. I followed this book up with Tina Sinatra's book, and saw her from the eyes of her children for who she really is. I feel cheated that I wasted my time and my money on a book full of lies by Barbara Sinatra. She fabricated a love story out of a complicated union.
Despite being on the outskirts of show business, she insists her introduction to "the boys" didn't occur until, once married, the mob wanted to meet Mrs Frank Sinatra.
Interesting view of Frank Sinatra's less charming quirks and warts. His temper tantrums were "exciting."
So telling that she wrote "Frank wanted me to go out..keep up with our friends." so she was out to dinner with friends when the housekeeper had to call for an ambulance to rush Frank to the hospital for the last time.
The only thing I can hope is that Frank wasn't as shallow and without substance as this vapid woman is and would have, if he had been younger when he met her, have had his fun and moved on. Ava may have been a lot of self-destructive things, but she at least had a personality unlike no other. Not only that, but it's the last thing on earth that Frank would've wanted - to have anyone be BORED, which I was. What a disappointing book from a disappointing woman. Wasteful, really, when you think of the massive opportunity she had to be interesting. Pearls before swine, I suppose.
