Format: Paperback
Before you buy, make note of page 11. "The management at Balmur Ltd., Anne Murray's company, as management so frequently does, when someone proposes a biography of their talent, informed me that 'Ms. Murray will not co-operate with any biographer at this stage of her career.'"
Barry Grills does his best. The book is half description of Springhill, Nova Scotia (Anne Murray's hometown), and half lengthy quotes from back issues of magazines and newspapers. As he says himself, ..."Anne Murray has always been an enigma."
If you've just discovered her talent, this is a good outline of her public life, up until the mid 90s. If you're already a fan, more than ever you'll want to go to Springhill, to see the Anne Murray Centre for yourself.
As for Anne Murray--she's still an enigma.

This book was a disappointment. In the beginning of the book, the author himself admitted that Murray's management would not cooperate in the writing of a biography. Thus he was left with reading various books and articles to do his research. Much of the book quoted a biography written by David Livingstone in 1981. It was like reading Livingstone's book twice! I have been an Anne Murray fan for 20 years and reading this biography left me knowing only as much as I did before. This publication is also full of misspelled words and misprints! An individual that doesn't know much about Murray may benefit from this book but die-hard fans need not bother.

Format: Paperback
Snowbird The Story Of Anne Murray gives Murray fans a wonderful tour in the public and private life of the lady. Mr Grills gives the reader all the information about Anne's life. Her family, career and so much more. I was blown about the part about a stalker that kept following Anne. The story is a mind blower to say the least. This book is one of those books I could not put down. Anne Murray fans this book is a must! Those who don't know the lady will be blown a way.

Format: Paperback
It depends on how you see this book for yourself. If you know everything about Anne, then this book isn't for you since it goes through the stuff all over again in detail. But if you don't know much about the Canadian Singer Anne Murray than this is a good book for you to have on your shelf. It talks about her private life, public life, on the stage, in the office, and in the studios. It gives you a detailed description of a woman the world fell in love with and continued loving for more than thirty years.
