Recommended Summer Read: Betty Ford by Lisa McCubbin

Thanks to Patricia Chadwick for this complimentary review of BETTY FORD. I hope you’ll take her advice and make Betty one of your summer reads!

Sometimes a book resonates with its reader in a special way. That can happen for an array of reasons – perhaps it stirs something deep inside, or it informs in a new way, or maybe it brings back memories, or it could be something else entirely.
