Okay, I'll confess. I had a bad crush on Elvis Presley when I was a girl. As a young teen, I loved his music and his movies, never knowing until I was an adult how much he hated those lame scripts. He wanted to really act, and it's my belief he could have made it as a serious actor if he'd been given a chance.
Anyway, this week is the anniversary of Elvis's birthday (January 8, 1935). How appropriate then that I can tell you about a friend's book with Elvis in the title.
A young widow, determined to fulfill her husband’s last request, hauls a three foot bust of Elvis strapped in the back seat of a vintage Cadillac from Texas to Memphis to return it to its rightful owner. The road trip with her eccentric aunt, who knew the King of Rock n’ Roll, and a temperamental teen, hits roadblocks and detours as the three women uncover pieces of their own past along with the bust’s mysterious history. The discoveries change the course of their lives forever.
