A new memoir from internationally renowned musician Liona Boyd.

Few people's lives are as romantic and adventurous as Liona Boyd's has been. She has performed around the world, sold millions of albums, won five Juno awards, serenaded numerous heads of state, and, for eight years, dated Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

Continuing her story in a new memoir, Liona recounts how she lost her ability to perform, details her divorce, and chronicles the emotional roller-coaster ride that followed. After six years of searching for answers, reinventing her technique, and learning to sing, she returned to Canada and a new career, creating five new albums as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

Liona shares the joys of composing and recording her own music and her cast of international friends, who include singer and actress Olivia Newton-John and her friend and pen pal of over thirty years, HRH Prince Philip.

Liona reveals her love affairs, spiritual journeys, personal and musical struggles, and greatest triumphs. Writing with candour and passion, she gives a behind-the-scenes tour of her fascinating world.

This book gives the reader many insights into how Liona Boyd had the courage, the determination, and the talent to become a singer and songwriter as well as a world-renowned classical guitarist. * Gordon Lightfoot *
Liona Boyd is justifiably famous for her magnificent classical guitar music and original poetic songs. Now in this book, we are able to enjoy her adventurous, romantic, and inspiring life. * Robert Bateman *
She may be a classical musician, but Liona Boyd has always had a rock star's social life. * Toronto Sun *

* David Onley, former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario *
Liona's life is one rollicking adventure after another. It's indeed a privilege to follow her on her many splendoured journeys, from page to page. In equal parts refreshing and courageous. * Dan Hill *
As a reporter I met and wrote about some fascinating individuals. Very few of them can match the extraordinary life and career of Liona Boyd and the beautiful way she writes about it. Liona has a thoroughly engaging style of writing and takes the reader through some truly intriguing experiences. * Robert MacBain, journalist and author *
While her famous friendships (Prince Philip, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Olivia Newton-John) do fill the room, there are also moments of quiet reflection and longing, as well as the overall feeling of a woman determined to live her best life, wherever that may be. * Beach Metro Community News *
