Passing It On
Unexpected Lessons Through Divorce, Blended Familes and Public Life
Bright Sky Press
"In Passing It On, Susan Baker sums up all that really matters in life from the lessons she has learned as a devoted wife, loving mother, friend to all, and tireless advocate for the well-being of every family. It is hard to write only a few sentences about a friend as dear to me as Susan. I always say that my husband "has no dark side," and I truly think of Susan in the same light. I enjoyed reading her encouraging autobiography that is filled with lots of love and joy, selfless giving, and ways to lead a life of faith—elements we can all pass on!"— Barbara Bush, Former First Lady and Literacy Advocate "In this fascinating and fun memoir Susan Baker truly does 'pass it on.' She passes on wisdom of how to deal with a blended family, troubled teens, a perpetually on the go husband and a cancer diagnosis. Her spirit shines through these pages—not only the spiritual gift of faith that has allowed her to meet life’s challenges but also the spiritedness that gives her the gumption to take on powerful interests on behalf of the homeless and children. Baker inspires us all to pass along whatever gifts we have to those who need them."— Cokie Roberts, news analyst and author
