Elvis Presley’s fiancée and last love tells her story and sets the record straight in this deeply personal memoir that reveals what really happened in the final years of the King of Rock n' Roll.


Elvis Presley and Graceland were fixtures in Ginger Alden’s life; after all, she was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. But she had no idea that she would play a part in that enduring legacy. For more than three decades Ginger has held the truth of their relationship close to her heart. Now she shares her unique story…

In her own words, Ginger details their whirlwind romance—from first kiss to his stunning proposal of marriage. And for the very first time, she talks about the devastating end of it all and the fifty thousand 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, Ginger 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 myth, a superstar worshipped by millions and loved by Ginger Alden.

Well I had to revise my opinion of her going on this book and her life since.
Not sure he was going to marry her but she is not whats been painted by the MM either and she does explain it in this book and on her facebook. And she did make a successful marriage later so was more family minded that most, which is what Elvis seemed to be looking for.

Elvis appears to have been a recluse like Howard Hughes, spending most of his time in his bedroom surrounded by "yes men" even when traveling to a new locale such as Vegas or Hawaii, he would rather stay in his room in his pajamas reading numerology books rather than see the sights.

Given the short time she knew Elvis (8 months total) and the fact they had little to nothing in common, as you can clearly see reading this book (she just did whatever he wanted for the most part). I'd say she was more in love with his fame and the expensive gifts he showered on her and her family more so than Elvis the man.
