Priscilla Beaulieu Presley inspires morbid and fervid curiosity. She was a schoolgirl, barely 14 years old, when Elvis Presley plucked her from a US Air Force base in Germany to be his child bride. Her own book, published in 1986, ended with their divorce in 1972, and this biography presents information on events occurring after that date and on the years following Elvis's death, on how Priscilla took control of Graceland, on her daughter Lisa-Marie, on their indoctrination into the cult of scientology, and on Lisa's secret marriage to Michael Jackson.

Review:

With three steamy books by the women in Elvis's life already published (1997's Elvis: In the Twilight of Memory by June Juanico; Priscilla Beaulieu Presley's 1991 tell-all, Elvis and Me; and Joyce Bova's Don't Ask Forever: My Love Affair with Elvis), can the world absorb another? Suzanne Finstad, author of Child Bride: The Untold Story of Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, certainly hopes so.

With as many darkly intriguing details as the chambers of Graceland, Finstad--journalist, lawyer, and author of two true-crime books--defends her own theories on the complexity and grit of the former Mrs. Presley. Why did she conspire with her mother to keep her paternity a secret? How old was she when she took up with the King? Suzanne Finstad treats us to her own exhaustively researched version of the facts.
