About the Book

This inspiring story is filled with plenty of emotions. It may make you laugh, maybe even cry. It is the true story of a young woman experiencing the changing of times - indoor plumbing, desegregation, teenage pregnancy and the challenges of life in the military. She shares her life's events and the strength she drew from persistence, determination and believing in herself. Her philosophy of life is clearly and simply summed up in the book's title: don't give up; keep Pressing On.
