Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr were founder members of the 5th Dimension who enjoyed million selling hit singles in America and the UK in the late '60s and early '70s. Marilyn also had a brief career in Christian music with the album 'The Me Nobody Knows' in the early '90s. However this book isn't just a book about their career but goes deeper with an insight into the ups and downs of their long and successful marriage. In a showbiz world where celebrities have a habit of marrying, divorcing and remarrying as often as they change their socks, here's a story of an enduring marriage and it hasn't always been easy for them balancing career and relationship. Along the journey both of them became Christians and this book tells their story. It's honest and revealing as the couple share the lessons they've learned. The style is conversational so it's a good, easy read packed with humour, entertaining stories and spiritual insights.
