Thanks Lorilee Craker for coming out and sharing the story of writing the book "Through the Storm" with Lynne Spears.
|Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World|
By Lynne Spears with Lorilee Craker / Thomas Nelson
Lynne was just an ordinary Southern mom when the overnight success of her daughter Britney shoved the Spears family into the blinding limelight glare.
Through the Storm takes readers beyond the reach of the paparazzi and outside the narrow orbit of the Hollywood glitterati to share the inside story of the Spears family-as only a mother can tell it. In this openhearted memoir, Lynne speaks about Britney, Jamie Lynn, Bryan, ex-husband Jamie, herself, and their lives together from Louisiana to Los Angeles, including:
Lynne's backseat role in Britney's path to fame and how it forever changed their family
Her regret in abdicating parental authority to managers, agents, and record companies
The challenges that shaped Lynne and Jamie's marriage and how that affected Bryan, Britney, and Jamie Lynn
Her response to Jamie Lynn's pregnancy
The startling events that led to Britney's meltdown and Lynne's showdown with manager Sam Lufti
How faith, family, and friendships have been her harbor in the storm of paparazzi, tabloid scribblers, and gossip hound s
Sincere, self-effacing, sometimes spunky, Lynne's memoir reveals the heart of a mother who has struggled through difficult times and how she has held onto her faith and her sense of humor as she tries to hold onto her family.
