Once upon a time there was a woman who had everything this world holds dear.
Denise Jackson had her handsome prince, country music legend Alan Jackson. She
had two young daughters and a brand-new bouncing baby. Denise’s staff took care
of her every need. She wore designer gowns and enormous diamonds.
From the outside, all was well.
But inside, Denise was discovering that building her life around her husband
and his colossal career just wasn’t working. She was stressed and pressed,
constantly trying to control her world, worried about what everyone else might
think, ignoring the relationship that mattered most. Somewhere along the road to
success, she’d lost her roots. Her childhood faith felt cold and old, and God
felt far away. Then Denise’s fairy-tale life fell apart. The wealth and fame
were still there, but Alan was gone. The precious love story that had begun when
they were teenagers seemed doomed, their marriage broken.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Alan and Denise Jackson’s life seemed like a fairy tale: high school
sweethearts marry young and leave small-town Georgia to pursue big dreams in
Music City. They pay their dues, work hard, and weather deep disappointments.
Then their dreams come true. Stardom and multi-platinum albums. Fame, wealth, a
palatial estate and vacation homes; a fleet of airplanes, luxury cars, designer
clothes and world-class jewelry.
In fairy tales, the Jacksons’ material success – plus their “perfect”
marriage, their three beautiful daughters, and their supportive families – would
have signaled a happily-ever-after ending.
But real life is different from fairy tales.
At the pinnacle of their success, much to the shock of their fans and the
pain of their families, the Jacksons separated. For Alan, musical renown, fame,
and wealth still did not make up for the marital problems the Jacksons had
struggles with for years. And for Denise, building her life around Alan and
riding the tide of his success had somehow left her hollow, unsure of just who
she really was.
You don’t have to be rich and famous to go through struggles like these.
Sooner or later, we all come to the point when we realize that real joy and
peace isn’t just around the corner of the next achievement, the next
relationship, the next new thing.
That’s why Alan and Denise Jackson’s story isn’t just a great read and a
dramatic, intimate look at the golden world of celebrity. It’s a story of the
greatest love of all, the love that will never let you go…and how to find it, no
matter who you are, where you live, or what you’ve done.
