REVIEWS - What Members Have to Say:
Beakiemom1: Jean describes her travels and adventures getting out the word for WFS in this slim, very readable book. Her dedication took her all over the country into hotels, lecture halls and television studios; anywhere that would give her space and some time to discuss the WFS program. Every time she appeared on television or was interviewed for a magazine article, she was inundated with mail from women begging to learn more about attending a meeting or beginning a WFS chapter. You have to remember that pretty much all of this was before computers and “getting sober online.” I learned about stereotypical images of the woman alcoholic- television producers almost always wanted 30ish, married, white women and who lived in the suburbs and had 2.3 children. We all know that we are everywhere and everyone and that our faces have endless facets. On the surface, this gypsy’s existence seems difficult; however, Jean was fueled by her almost endless energy, commitment and total belief in her program. Did I mention love? When things got difficult, love always kept her going. This is a very interesting book; another look at our beloved foundress and how WFS is where it is today- in our lives and in our hearts.
