Much has happened in Daniel O'Donnell's life since his first autobiography, Follow Your Dream, and in this new book he reflects on the range of experiences and emotions that accompanied his wife Majella's battle with cancer; the
death of his beloved mother, Julia; his part in the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing TV show; and his B&B Road Trip adventures with Majella. And he delves into the relentless touring and recording that took him to the brink of burnout and forced him to reassess his priorities.
