Publisher David Dunham stated: “I am pleased to publish Dr. Black’s inspiring and informative biography about his wife, Congressman Diane Black. Her story of growing up in public housing, becoming a nurse, and then being elected to the US Congress is the classic American Dream.”
In this moving memoir, Dr. Black recounts the unforgettable moment in 1967 when he first laid eyes on Diane, and how eleven years later they finally embarked on a life together.
