From the Publisher:

The life story and faith journey of one of the last of the legends of Hollywood, Forever Young is an unforgettable, moving, funny, poignant account of a film and television star many admired for her grace, poise and beauty. Loretta Young's faith and determination come to life in this carefully researched biography of her life. For 30 years, Miss Young had refused overtures from biographers. In 1998, she met New York Times bestselling author Joan Wester Anderson and commented to her daughter-in-law Linda Lewis, "That's the woman I want to write the story of my life." When Linda queried Miss Young about the choice, her comment was, "Who better than a writer of angels and miracles to tell the story of my life?"

From the Inside Flap:

In the only authorized biography of the life of Hollywood legend Loretta Young, New York Times bestselling author Joan Wester Anderson paints an honest portrait of a woman dedicated to her family, to her screen career, but above all, to her God. In Forever Young, Anderson reveals the actress's passion for unforgettable performances onscreeen, but whose proudest accomplishment later in life was helping others in need. Forever Young is the inspirational story of Loretta Young, who made an impressive 100 films in just twenty-five years. She co-starred with Grant Withers, Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., William Holden, Tyrone Power and James Cagney. She won an Oscar in 1948 for her portrayal of a Swedish maid in The Farmer's Daughter, beating out Rosalind Russell. Five years later, Miss Young moved to television becoming the queen of Eisenhower-era matrons in "The Loretta Young Show," which ran an impressive eight years. In 1! 994, Loretta Young's "adopted" daughter Judy Lewis announced that Miss Young and Clark Gable were her biological parents---a claim that Young, who had co-starred with Gable in Call of the Wild (1935) has now answered definitively in Forever Young: The Life, Loves and Enduring Faith of a Hollywood legend. This is Loretta Young's remarkable story...
