From the Publisher...

"Your Mother Should Know" is Angie McCartney's collection of stores about her life (and her daughter Ruth's life) as Paul McCartney's step mother. Her stories and musings are funny, romantic, sad, positive, inspirational, wise, witty, and simply fascinating. Now 90 years old, Angie takes you from her beginnings in Liverpool during World War II, through her romance with Paul's father Jim, Beatlemania, to life after The Beatles in Australia, Germany, Nashville, and Los Angeles. Angie's book has QR codes included throughout the book, making it a fun and interactive read.
