In 1971, Jim Croce, a Philadelphia native, wrote the haunting melody and words for the classic “Time in a Bottle ” a song for his pregnant wife, Ingrid, and unborn son, Adrian James.
Less than two years later, Jim Croce’s life was tragically cut short by a plane crash. This photographic memoir by Ingrid offers an intimate look at the Croce’s lives through Jim’s lyrics, quotes, photographs, and memories. With the turning of every page, it reveals never before seen photographs and a timeline of remembrances.
“Time in a Bottle has always been the most meaningful song for me. Newlyweds, moms and dads, singers, guitar players, friends and neighbors have shared their stories about how they played Time in a Bottle at their wedding, for their children, or as the very first song they ever performed in front of an audience. Prophetically, Time in a Bottle was the last song Jim Croce sang at the concert in Natchitoches, Louisiana, on his final tour. I believe it would make him happy to know we’re still listening.”
