Elizabeth Anne Ford (1918 - 2011) was the First Lady of the United States from 1974 to 1977, as the wife of President Gerald Ford. She set a precedent as a politically active presidential spouse. Ford also served as the Second Lady of the United States from 1973 to 1974, when her husband was VP to President Nixon. She was the founder and first chair of the Betty Ford Center for substance abuse and addiction.
This is a deeply personal memoir in which Mrs. Ford shares her experience, understanding, and hope, so that other men and women can discover that alcoholism and drug addiction need not rob them of their lives, and that it is possible for them to experience gratitude, serenity, and freedom. These people are her ongoing inspiration to help others who feel defeated by the disease of addiction.
