From the Inside Flap:

As the eldest of The Nolans, Anne Nolan's life appeared from the outside to be one of boundless excitement and glamour - a dream come true for any young and aspiring singer. The six singing sisters began as regulars on the Blackpool club circuit before breaking through and achieving massive success, and supporting a stellar string of stars from Cliff Richard to Frank Sinatra. At the height of their fame, The Nolans were one of the biggest acts around, travelling the world to play for their adoring fans. But, behind the spotlights lay a darker, deeply disturbing reality, that has until now never been told.

Surrounded by a bevy of loving sisters, two protective brothers and parents who wanted their children to succeed, how could Anne’s childhood have been anything buy idyllic? Yet lurking behind the scenes was a tyrannical father hell bent on destroying Anne’s innocence. A man whose actions cast a long shadow over Anne’s life, stunting her relationships, contributing to the breakdown of her marriage and all but costing her the unconditional love of her two adored daughters.

Anne has suffered in silence for years but has now bravely decided to fight back and confront her demons.Unflinchingly honest and unbearably poignant, Anne’s Song is the brutal truth behind the carefully cultivated image that was The Nolans.
