Have any of you read this book?
First, here are her 8 children:I have my issues with some of the book, so rather than review it, I want to share some of my favorite paragraphs:
In the 70s, a crowd of teenage girls would stand vigil outside what ever house, apt, studio, or hotel the Osmonds would be staying at. This is how Marie's mom would deal with them:I so agree with the quote below:
The first couple of years doing shows, Marie writes about how her parents would get one hotel room. Then they would take turns using the shower while living in the trailer hitched to their car:
And about her work with the Children's Miracle Network:
As a side note, Den's daughter are often asked if they are related to Marie. Once when they were at Disneyland, Marie's father came up to Kim and Kris and actually asked them, "Are we related?" I once showed the picture above to Donny's cousin's wife and she said, "They look more like Osmonds than my husband does!"
The video below includes pictures from the Osmond past, including some clips from home movies way long ago. The pictures start at about 2:45. Not to mention this song is beautiful!
