Elvis and Ginger: Elvis Presley's Fiancée and Last Love Finally Tells Her Story Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"Elvis, you and I know the truth and unfortunately you’re not here to set the record straight. With this book, I will try to.…"
Elvis Presley and Graceland were fixtures in the life of Ginger Alden, having been born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. But she had no idea that she would play a part in that enduring legacy - as Elvis Presley’s fiancée, and his last great love. For over three decades Ginger has held the truth of their relationship close to her heart. Now she shares her unique story, and while a lot has been written about the King, the Elvis we meet in this long-anticipated memoir is a revelation.
In her own words Ginger details their whirlwind romance - from first kiss to his stunning proposal of marriage. She details his exploration of Eastern religions, his perception of being a "legend", his devotion to family and friends, and her attempt to know the insular group surrounding Elvis. And for the very first time she talks about the devastating end of it all, and the 50,000 mourners and reporters who descended on Graceland in 1977, exposing Ginger to the reality of living in the spotlight of a short, yet immortal, life.
Above it all, Alden rescues Elvis from the hearsay, rumors, and tabloid speculations of his final year by shedding a frank yet personal light on a very public legend. From a unique and intimate perspective, she reveals the man - complicated, romantic, fallible, and human - behind the enduring myth, a superstar worshipped by millions, and loved by Ginger Alden.

Poor Elvis was very unwell the last year of his life and suffered deeply from depression. GInger disclosed Elvis' way of life by hibernating in his bedroom, dressed in in pajamas, eating junk food, reading numerous numerology books. She also stayed many nights at Graceland, described how they had sex , while she also states "she is not that kind of girl" one of many contradicting comments that Ginger often makes.
This life style was not fit for any 20 year old unless you were Ginger Alden only caring about spending Elvis' money, receiving lots of jewellery, mink coats, cars etc, more than looking after his health. She watched Elvis decline but instead of showing concern for him, she complained about him drinking Papaya Juice and eating yoghurt rather than worrying about something that was more important and detrimental to Elvis and his health.
This person who called herself "fiancé'", was none other than a user, who stole from Elvis when he passed away and made millions from him by selling the gifts he gave her, along with the jewellery she stole. How utterly disgusting and how utterly degrading.
Friends from Elvis "Inner Circle' claimed that they loved Linda more than Ginger. Linda was a very likeable person by all and she had heart of gold. She loved Elvis deeply and she looked after him, while she was with him. She saved his life many times. If Linda was with him, he would never have died that day.
I felt that Ginger was too young for Elvis, very immature and not capable enough to look after him at all.
She was very self obsessed with a narcissistic personality nothing but a gold digger out for herself and handbag/hanger on a, to Elvis
Even though he proposed, he was not going to marry her, knowing that she was still dating Larry and he was dating Alicia Kerwin. Ginger only wore the engagement ring Elvis gave her when she only visited Graceland and placed it back in her jewellery box when when she went home to her mother.
Ginger stated in the book that Lisa Marie called her 'Mommy". Im sorry but there is no way that Elvis and Priscilla would approve of this. There is no need to lie about something that Lisa would never say to Ginger. The person that Lisa favored in her life (except for her mother and father) was Linda. Most definitely NOT Ginger!!
Furthermore, on 16th August 1977, the maids downstairs heard a loud thump when Elvis hit the floor in his bathroom and but Ginger ignored it because she suffered period cramps and was more concerned about her own well being. ;-(
I was also informed by a close friend of Elvis, that when he lay dying on his bathroom floor, Ginger was more concerned with her own appearance and making herself look pretty while poor Elvis lay there alone in his last moments. Make up was more important for her than being concerned for dear Elvis. to face the world and inform them of Elvis' passing.
Ginger was also delighted when her mother took EPE to court to pay for her mother's mortgage after she 'claims that Elvis said he would pay for the mortgage" and won. Then thankfully EPE re - appealed the case and won. If it wasnt for EPE and Priscilla, Graceland wouldnt be where it is today.
I end this review by a Quote from Elvis "Sit down Ginger... Thats enough of her!!!" Says it all doesn't it......
