You could say that fate placed Elvis Presley, the most famous GI in the army, in Germany, and that fate, too, played a role in Priscilla Beaulieu's family's transfer to that same country in that same year. But that's where fate leaves off and sheer resolve takes over, as a beautiful fourteen-year-old girl determines to meet the twenty-six-year-old King of Rock and Roll - and the rest is truly history. Child Bride is the never-before-told story of Elvis's love affair with Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, the only woman he ever married. For the first time, award-winning author and journalist Suzanne Finstad tells the intimate, behind-the-scenes story of Elvis and Priscilla's life together - a tumultuous, captivating tale of sexual attraction and obsession played out across two continents and two very different worlds. In Child Bride Finstad carefully maps the relationships and circumstances that shaped one of the most successful and powerful women of her generation - a woman who almost single-handedly took a six-million-dollar estate and turned it into a hundred-million-dollar enterprise.

With three steamy books by the women in Elvis's life already published (1997's Elvis: In the Twilight of Memory by June Juanico; Priscilla Beaulieu Presley's 1991 tell-all, Elvis and Me; and Joyce Bova's Don't Ask Forever: My Love Affair with Elvis), can the world absorb another? Suzanne Finstad, author of Child Bride: The Untold Story of Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, certainly hopes so.
With as many darkly intriguing details as the chambers of Graceland, Finstad--journalist, lawyer, and author of two true-crime books--defends her own theories on the complexity and grit of the former Mrs. Presley. Why did she conspire with her mother to keep her paternity a secret? How old was she when she took up with the King? Suzanne Finstad treats us to her own exhaustively researched version of the facts.About the Author:
