Over the years, thousands of readers have immersed themselves in the world of Rose, an abandoned and abused child who stubbornly and defiantly became a caring and loving mother. In her honest and straightforward style, and in appreciation of those who have taken such an interest in her life, Rose continues her original story revealing events from the next two decades. Along with the discovery of some of the missing pieces of her childhood, Rose describes the frustration, hard work, and unexpected benefits found among the challenges of the social welfare system. This unique individual has made many of her readers reconsider their views of those in need, especially those we may consider undeserving of our help. In doing so, Rose's Story proves to be a case that redefines what it means to help someone.

"I use this book in Introduction to Social Work so students see the field from the client's perspective. They always appreciate this assignment." --Jerry Jo Manfred-Gilham, Franciscan University
"I am considering using this as a required supplemental text for a course that focuses on social work practice skills with individuals. It humanizes the struggles faced by client populations and will likely be helpful in building empathy in students." --Diana Rowan, University of North Carolina
"Everyone can benefit from reading this book. But it is of particular value and importance to social service and mental health professionals because of Rose's long and close involvement with those systems. Her story shows how the human service professions can help and harm clients. The good intentions of our helping systems serve no good purpose if the individual s story isn't heard." --Marshall Ginsburg, University Hospital of Cincinnati
