    I can wait no longer to express my strong recommendation of Gene

    I can wait no longer to express my strong recommendation of Gene Shirley Richey's great autobiography "DANCING MY WAY THROUGH HELL! She traces her long years of physical and sexual abuse in Alabama, her departure in a beat-up old car with her 3 children and $30 bound for Iowa. Her situation changed drastically as she managed the famous Armar Ballroom in Cedar Rapids, taught adult education at Kirkwood Community College and started her own business called Helping Hands, Inc. She had several employments in the Los Angeles area with a great door of opportunity opening for her as the personal assistant of the owner of the Wally Findlay Galleries located in Chicago, New York, Palm Beach and Paris. She finally moved to Tappahannock, Virginia, where she started "DANCING MY WAY THROUGH HELL! at age 78, completing it in Georgia at age 85. She is now 86! My several readings of her book clearly indicates not only her life struggles but also a forgiving spirit, which was the key to bringing Gene, or as the reader might like to call her, Genie, through her many experiences in six states and leading her into an amazing future. I had the privilege of being present at her signings of this book in the Barnes&Noble store at The Mall of Georgia on April 5, 2014. I strongly urge all who read these lines to buy Genie's book and to recommend it to many others. As a friend has described it, it is not only "fantastic" but "well written" and "magnificent!!"
