The book promises to "set the record straight" about her relationship with Presley, from when they first met to when he passed away, according to the Hollywood Reporter
"Elvis, you and I know the truth and unfortunately you’re not here to set the record straight. With this book, I will try to..." Alden says in a review posted on Amazon.com.
In addition to confronting the rumors that plagued the iconic musician in the years before his death and decades following it courtesy of tabloid newspapers and celebrity magazines, Alden will also reportedly discuss Presley's exploration of Eastern religions, his perception of fame, and his intimate moments with loved ones.
"From a unique and intimate perspective, she reveals the man—complicated, romantic, fallible, and human—behind the enduring myth, a superstar worshipped by millions, and loved by Ginger Alden," Amazon.com writes in its review of the memoir
The 57-year-old Alden first met Presley as a child when her father, a U.S. Army officer, inducted the late Rock and Roll legend into the military in 1961. Years later, a 20-year-old Alden was reintroduced to Elvis and two subsequently became engaged.
After playing a late-night game of racquetball with Presley, Alden awoke on the afternoon of August 16, 1977, to find the "King of Rock and Roll" lying dead on the floor in his bathroom. A chief medical officer later determined that Presley had died from cardiac arrhythmia. He was just 42 years old.
