9780451240323: The Key Is Love: My Mother's Wisdom, A Daughter's Gratitude

For beloved superstar Marie Osmond, one gift that her mother gave her stands above the rest: the gift to trust and follow her heart.

Even when her path seemed bleak, it was this unwavering faith that allowed her to follow her dreams, both professional and personal, and survive the hardest times in her life. Like so many women out there, Marie has struggled through years of being a single parent and a working parent, while juggling the need to be there for her children and still be there for her other “family,” the multitude of fans and followers who look up to her.

Through it all, Marie has turned to the person who helped her through every stage of her life and her career: her mother. Drawing on the wisdom that Olive Osmond imparted over the years, Marie weaves a rich, touching, and honest memoir about her life offstage and off-camera, where she took on her most important role: motherhood. Through her personal delights, dreams, downturns, and devastating tragedy, Marie offers insights on creating a strong family, raising happy and independent children and, especially, moving forward when it seems impossible to do so.

Review:

Praise for The Key is Love

“Long-time entertainer Osmond honors her parents' hard work, discipline, and love in this touching memoir...An intimate story...dynamically rendered. [P]oignant and beautifully drawn.” –Publishers Weekly

Praise for Might as Well Laugh About it Now

"Marie Osmond is a radiant personality whose effectiveness in life comes not only through lessons learned, but also by allowing herself to laugh along the way. She is truly an inspiring individual."--Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me

"Marie's life...is tantalizing in its ups and downs, a circus of hysterical situations that will make you laugh out loud...She's been my friend for twenty-five years and always her sense of humor has prevailed."--Mary Hart, host of Entertainment Tonight

"Marie Osmond's real life stories echo the humor of Erma Bombeck and the humility of Anne Morrow Lindbergh (Gift from the Sea). It's impressive how this incredible woman keeps on keepin' on."--Larry King
