This book contains very little that is not included in previous biographies, it does however have many references to the sources from which the information came.
My confidence in the book ends on pages 368 and 369.
On page 368 the procedure behind the installation of the Historic Marker outside 608 S Kent St is described. This happened in 2005.
On page 369 the words are It would take five more years for CPC to open 608 South Kent Street as a historic house, complete with tours and displays of rare Patsy Cline memorabilia. Responsible for this was Judy Sue Huyett-Kempf who reconstituted the CPC board, and worked to raise the necessary money. Finally, in 2011, fans had a central place to find Patsy Cline in Winchester
At the time I write this ( May 1st 2011 ) the Historic House is due to open in late spring or early summer ( quote Winchester Star ) 2011. It has been stated that many of the exhibits in the house will be replicas of memorabilia due to concerns about security and environmental limitations in the building.
It is ironic that a book which Mrs Kempf states is the " first thoroughly researched book" makes no mention of the expensive and failed efforts between 2006 and 2010 that CPC made to open a museum in 134 North Loudoun Street. A museum which in 2006 they had promised would open by the end of 2007.
Also as I write this there are suggestions coming from a trader on the Mall where the museum was to open that some unexpected problems have been discovered during the renovation work at 608.
