BETTY FORD First Lady, Women's Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer

by | Read by Amanda Carlin

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

First Lady Betty Ford faced many challenges in her life that would have felled someone with less determination. In this audiobook, narrator Amanda Carlin does a fine job of giving Ford a voice and personality infused with that strength of mind. Listeners may be surprised to learn that Ford's passion was dance. She grew up wanting to be a dancer, but when she and Gerald Ford married, she gave up her dream to fulfill his. Carlin's tone and intonation express Ford's struggle with making this choice. She was a devoted wife, mother, and cancer survivor who also conquered her addictions. Carlin's admiration for her subject is apparent in her performance. Listeners will enjoy hearing this lively presentation about an extraordinary first lady. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
