Long DescriptionHere, in one of the most poignant and powerful star autobiographies ever written, June Allyson candidly recounts: • the bittersweet love story of her seventeen- year marriage to a man twice her age, Dick Powell, who called her his child bride and introduced her into a dazzling world of talent and power that included the Ronald Reagans (both Jane Wyman and later Nancy Davis)... • her relationships with early dates Van Johnson, Peter Lawford, and JFK; her mentor Claudette Colbert; her perennial screen husband Jimmy Stewart; her boss Louis B. Mayer; her favorite co-star, the doomed Robert Walker; her close friend Judy Garland, from the days of blazing stardom at MGM through the catastrophic experiences that propelled both Judy and June through a dark tunnel of self-destruction; loyal and loving family and, above all, her last husband, Dr. David Ashrow, who helped June put her life back together again ... • the shocking ordeal of The Conqueror, the Howard Hughes super spectacle that led to disaster for Dick Powell, John Wayne, Susan Hayward, Pedro Armendariz and Agnes Moorehead. As rich in joy and drenched in heartbreak as life itself, full of fights, lovemaking, parties, children, births and deaths, June Allyson's story will plunge the reader alternately into laughter and tears -- a book as heartwarming as the lady herself.

Our area was hit by a power outage in the evening on 11/24/2013. Our systems safely shut down before the battery backup ran out. When the power was restored, we received our alert and were able to power on all of the systems in sequence without any issue. Sorry for the interuption in service but it was beyond our control.
