Format: Hardcover
Supreme Faith begins in 1970. Barry Gordy has long been paving the way for his lover, Diana Ross, to shed the Supremes and claim her solo stardom. But what happens next wasn't what Gordy and Ross had planned. While Ross has only one Top-10 hit in the next four years, the Supremes (now with Jean Terrell) see hit after hit climb the charts, with songs like "Up the Ladder To the Roof" and "Stoned Love." But then Gordy turns his attention to making movies instead of records, and all the Motown artists - such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, and even the Jackson Five - find their instant success no longer so instant as the unstoppable Motown hit machine grinds to a halt. The record company does nothing to help the Supremes develop a new, more contemporary style, stops promoting their albums to radio stations, and when there is a hit, does nothing to keep the momentum going. Since Motown won't do it, Mary tries to keep the group going herself, but as each new member learns the truth about Motown, she ends up presiding over a revolving door of singers.

Mary's private life is both wonderful and tumultuous. She has memorable romances with Flip Wilson, Steve McQueen, and Duke Fakir of the Four Tops. Then she falls deeply in love with and marries Pedro Ferrer. Pedro has the strength Mary needs to keep fighting on behalf of the Supremes - and the strength to become a wifebeater. At the nadir of her life, the Supremes are forced to appear at an oldies show at Madison Square Garden and are booed off the stage when they present new material. Days later, Pedro throws a glass at Mary, ripping away her ear.

Mary gets away from Motown, divorces Pedro, and launches her solo career, only to find both her ex-husband and the record company dogging her every step.

Mary Wilson does it again with Supreme Faith:Someday We'll Be Together. The story of Mary and the Supremes after Diana Ross. I have met Mary Wilson and she is very nice to her fans. She spoke movingly about the accidental seath of her son. Her show was wonderful too.

Music fans and fans of the specific sounds of Motown and the Supremes should read this book. Of all the iconic and internationally famous Supremes, only Ms Mary Wilson has transcended the world of music to make the world a better place for people to thrive. This book is an interesting story that carries readers into the whirlwind life of three women whose voices and image became the template for the Motown sound. This is Ms Wilson's story and I enjoyed her voice and the opportunity to go behind the scenes with such a lovely person.

Format: Paperback
This is Miss Mary's follow up to Dreamgirl, Her Why I hate Diana Ross book, Now Miss Mary takes the time to tell us just what was wrong with all the other Supremes, it's endless, she leaves Florence alone, (only out of respect for the dead), Once again, Miss Mary is a Victim of Everyone again, Motown, the 5 Supremes (after Diana Ross) & for good measure she takes a couple of shots @ Diana Ross, But she never approaches the topic of her Cocaine addiction or any other topic that could show her in a less than favourable light, Very slanted & self serving
