The love story between Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio is a timeless tale. Both of these legends had extraordinary careers in their individual fields, as well as remarkable existences.
This book chronicles each of their lives, from the days before they met, until that magical night in 1952 when their paths finally crossed.
Their lives would never be the same after that.
Though their marriage lasted for nine months, their love endured beyond those years and her death in 1962 -- Joe's heart yearned for no one else, even at his deathbed thirty-seven years after her untimely passing.
This account shares of their love and focuses on their marriage in 1954, and their trip to Japan and her trip to Korea, during the nearly one month time span that the couple was in the Far East together.
