Book Information

Naomi Judd's life as a country music superstar has been nonstop success. But offstage, she has battled incredible adversity. Struggling through a childhood of harsh family secrets, the death of a young sibling, and absent emotional support, Naomi found herself reluctantly married and an expectant mother at age seventeen. Four years later, she was a single mom of two, who survived being beaten and raped, and was abandoned without any financial support and nowhere to turn in Hollywood, CA.

Naomi has always been a survivor: She put herself through nursing school to support her young daughters, then took a courageous chance by moving to Nashville to pursue their fantastic dream of careers in country music. Her leap of faith paid off, and Naomi and her daughter Wynonna became The Judds, soon ranking with country music's biggest stars, selling more than 20 million records and winning six Grammys.

At the height of the singing duo's popularity, Naomi was given three years to live after being diagnosed with the previously incurable Hepatitis C. Miraculously, she overcame that too and was pronounced completely cured five years later.

But Naomi was still to face her most desperate fight yet. After finishing a tour with Wynonna in 2011, she began a three-year battle with Severe Treatment Resistant Depression and anxiety. She suffered through frustrating and dangerous roller-coaster effects with antidepressants and other drugs, often terrifying therapies and, at her absolute lowest points, thoughts of suicide. But Naomi persevered once again. RIVER OF TIME is her poignant message of hope to anyone whose life has been scarred by trauma.

  • PTSD?

    By Knit Nammy
    It's difficult for me to understand how Naomi Judd can justify lack of parental affection and praise, receiving a used bike for Christmas, having her room redecorated in brown, being a divorced single mother, working her way through nursing school, etc., as PTSD. I can understand being almost molested by her uncle, and raped by her boyfriend as being traumatic experiences, but I guess I see things through a different prism; having polio and being paralyzed at age 4 and being isolated from my parents for months, being truly molested by a stranger at age 5, and as Naomi, no parental affection. Moving to six different states, and being the new student 9 times in 9 years, and as an adult, watching my son die. Also, working as an RN for 40 years, as opposed to Naomi's 5, and caring for people who suffered tremendous trauma and suffering. I can truly categorize that as causing PTSD. Losing her career, attention, and being on stage and in the spotlight would be stress inducing, and a cause for depression. I can understand that. I feel great empathy for anyone experiencing depression. But PTSD? Soldiers in wars, accident or trauma victims, the death of a child, families of murder victims, People in Aleppo, earthquake, hurricane, tornado victims, etc. YES! Definitely PTSD! But, in my opinion, not lack of parental affection. I'm glad Naomi found her way out of depression, and I've enjoyed her music, but I found it difficult to enjoy this book.
