About the Book

Doris accepted all that life threw at her – hardships, bias against women, a new career and raising six children. There were misconceptions as to who she really was. If she was ever devastated her broad smile was a true mask while going about her daily tasks. When her life partner took ill and later died, to the surprise of many, a quiet stalwart formidably emerged and “water” ran off her back like that of a duck!
