She asked how many in the audience had been or were currently caregivers. To her surprise, many raised their hands.

According to Pat: “Former first lady Rosalynn Carter said it best when it comes to describing my newest release, My Rock, book 1 in the Caregivers series. There are four kinds of people in the world: Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers. And those who will need caregivers.”
