I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was an engaging read, I couldn't put it down. I felt like I was living Romona's journey. I am very proud to have grown up in Wilson City and love that Romona was able to accomplish her dreams. This is an inspiring read and encourage others to go on the journey with Romona.

From the first few pages, I was drawn into your journey from a little girl with a dream to a young adult facing the realities of a professional woman within the broadcast industry. I appreciated your strength, determination, and faith as you worked through numerous struggles as the first African American woman to anchor a nightly newscast. I found myself cheering you through each chapter and weeping with you as you bathed your aging mother. I was inspired by you, your work and your words. I have already shared your book with others.
