Although her mother, Naomi, and older sister, Wynonna, rose to fame as the country music duo The Judds, Ashley Judd took her own road to stardom, becoming one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood today.

In this biography, which examines Ashley’s life from birth to her appearance at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, author and journalist James L. Dickerson recounts her difficult childhood in Kentucky and California, her sometimes troubled relationships with her mother and sister, her big-screen breakthrough in the 1993 movie “Ruby in Paradise,” her ongoing series of starring roles, her life-long struggle with depression, and her marriage.

Discover the inside story of the actress who has starred in movies such as “Heat,” “Double Jeopardy,” “Kiss the Girls,” “High Crimes,” and “The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.” Journey with her as she makes the transition from actress to social activist, addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations on matters of the greatest importance. Her most recent acting role was in the ABC-TV series “Missing,” delivering a stunning performance that New York Times critic Mike Hale hailed as “not quite like anything else on television at the moment.” The series was cancelled early in 2012.
