As a woman, I did wonder toward the end of every detailed depiction of rage why Ms. Harris chose not to leave Buckingham, but only an insider in this pseudo-fabulous world of entertainment could relate.
This book has given me a new respect for Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, both of whom played hard but were too talented to let the toxic world around them deteriorate their music, their success, or their sense of individulaism.
Kudos for Ms. Harris for her honesty and brutal depiction of her memories, journals, audio taped conversations, and "war wounds" that went into the writing of this book. I hope the result was cathartic and, hopefully, very successful. I wish you the very best!
She could have taking 1/2 of his fortune as his common law wife but instead chose to leave with almost nothing. Why did she stay? The same reason that most people stay in an abusive relationship.
Good insight into the band during the period in which they were on top of the world.
I'm sure it took her the 20 intervening years since she left Linsey to get over the trauma and to chronicle, fairly objectively, the tumultous ride that nearly killed her!
I absolutely could not put this book down!
Her style is perfect as this book reads more like a novel than a mere chronicle of events.
The guest appearances of so many rock legends is icing on the cake. An absolute must read for anyone with an interest in the incredible Fleetwood Mac story.
Thank You Carol Ann, FINALLY!
For fans of the Mac, Harris' recollections on her time with the band will make for juicy, page-turning reading. But it's when she turns the mirror on herself that the book really gets going. Being the girlfriend of a tortured genius is no easy task, and Harris takes us through the highs and lows, the euphroia and the horror, in an almost miraculous fashion, with a depth of feeling seldom found in even the best of celebrity tell-alls.
Welcome the arrival of an exciting new writer.

This book must be taken with a grain of salt. Carol Ann was Lindsey's girlfriend and therefore will naturally have some biases, but that's to be expected in a situation such as this. Some reviewers have expressed doubt over the author's "recall" issue for detailed conversations that happened 30 years ago, but the author did mention that she had made audio recordings for posterity during these years - one of which was the cause of Lindsey's lashing out. If you're an avid Stevie fan, the book is a bit bubble-bursting as far as showing the extent of her "competitiveness", but Stevie is, after all, a human being. Some of Lindsey's behavior makes me question his humanity at times though. Carol Ann does give the whole band well-deserved praise for their amazing musical talents and charisma.
Although nobody should expect Carol Ann to be a psychology major and be able to understand exactly what made her and Lindsey's relationship tick, she seems to miss what was pretty obvious to me about the physical abuse - Lindsey apparently had some nasty triggers that had more to do with dislike of "female gossip-type behavior" than anything else. I couldn't understand why Carol Ann doesn't seem to see this, as several of his "attacks" are coupled with comments in that direction. We cannot expect her to know what created these triggers since she says she never discussed this issue with Lindsey, but I do feel bad for the negative press this will cause him ... perhaps she should have titled it "Lindsey Dearest".
