Third Floor by Judi Loren Grace
Judi is a natural-born story teller. Her words make the other stuff in your life slip away for awhile as you lean forward into the next page. --Janet Wright M.D. F.A.C.C.
Judi and I grew up together in the same small central California town in the swinging sixties. One day Judi disappeared and now we know why. Thank you Judi for casting light and sharing your personal story about this dark side of the sixties. We’ve come along way because people like you spoke out about this “silent” issue I am proud to know you and praise your honesty. --Roger W. Davenport M.D., Chief of Neurology, Lutheran Medical Center Brooklyn, New York
Heartbreaking and authentic, the author captures the essence of that misguided era of secrecy and hypocrisy as “good girls” were banished from home and community for the sin of unwed pregnancy. A wonderful addition to adoption literature. -- Lynne (Silona) Reyman PH.D. Psychology Chico, California
The Third Floor is a true story of what it was to be a young pregnant teen in the 1960s. Isolated, hidden away, vilified by society, Judi tells her story and thereby the story of many young women like her. It is a story of tragedy and triumph, fear and courage, sadness and joy. But most of all it is a story of overcoming societal ignorance and intolerance, of finding friendships, love, and hope in unlikely places. The Third Floor will make you laugh, cry, and maybe most importantly it will make you think. --Roger B. Graves PH. D. Licensed Psychologist Anchorage, Alaska
