Thirty years after she first heard his voice singing on the
jukebox at her local drive-in, Barbara Ann Blakely heard
Frank Sinatra take the wedding vows that began his fourth,
final, and most enduring marriage.
In Lady Blue Eyes, Barbara Sinatra’s first public love
letter to the husband she adored, she celebrates the
sensational singer, possessive mate, sexy heartthrob, and
devoted friend that she found in Frank. For more than two
decades, Barbara was always by his side, traveling the globe
and hosting glittering events for their famous friends,
including presidents, kings, queens, Hollywood royalty, and
musical legends. Among them were Sammy Davis, Jr., Princess
Grace of Monaco, Bob Dylan, and Ronald Reagan. Each night,
as Frank publicly wooed his bride with love songs from a
concert stage, she’d fall in love with him all over again.
From her own humble beginnings in a small town in Missouri
to her time as a fashion model and her marriage to Zeppo
Marx, Barbara Sinatra reveals a life lived with passion,
conviction, and grace. A founder of the Miss Universe
pageant and a onetime Vegas showgirl, she raised her only
son almost single-handedly in often dire circumstances
until, after five years of tempestuous courtship, she and
Frank committed to each other wholeheartedly. In stories
that leap off the page, she takes us behind the scenes of
her iconic husband’s legendary career and paints an intimate
portrait of a man who was variously generous, jealous,
witty, and wicked. Coupled with revealing insights about
many of Frank’s celebrated songs, this is much more than the
story of a showbiz marriage.
It is a story of passion and of a deep and lifelong love.
