Description

The myth-shattering account of the most famous and most taboo love story in rock-and-roll history

Child Bride reveals the hidden story of rock icon Elvis Presley’s love affair with fourteen-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu, the ninth-grader he wooed as a G.I. in Germany and cloistered at Graceland before marrying her to fulfill a promise to her starstruck parents. Award-winning biographer Suzanne Finstad perceptively pieces together the clues from candid interviews with all the Presley intimates—including Priscilla herself, along with hundreds of sources who have never before spoken publicly—to uncover the surprising truths behind the legend of Elvis and Priscilla, a tumultuous tale of sexual attraction and obsession, heartbreak and loss.

Child Bride, the only major biography of Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, unveils the controversial child-woman who evolved from a lonely and sexually precocious teenager kept by the King of Rock and Roll into a shrewd businesswoman in control of the multimillion-dollar Elvis Presley empire, a rags-to-riches saga of secrets and betrayals that began when Priscilla was only three years old.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    This book gives great insight and explains things hardly anyone is aware of. Beginning at birth all the way to Lisa's marriage to Michael Jackson. I love the fact that that were details about Lisa not known. In a way I wished we had gotten a better look at Elvis but this was a book on Priscilla. How she thinks, works and makes calculated decisions. Good book but there were some slow areas in the book. Good read for Elvis fans.
