About the Book
A friend in the western United States had written that good jobs seemed to bloom on nearly every corner. After careful consideration and prayer, Beth, her two children, and her mother boarded a train in Jacksonville, Florida. After changing trains in Atlanta and New Orleans, they arrived in Los Angeles, California, one week later.
Once Beth and her family reached California, however, Beth realized that the journey had just begun. She faced prejudice and sexism repeatedly because she was a single woman with children. That changed when she met influential men who championed her work. An Unexpected Courage is the story of a woman who through persistence and courage stepped into the male-dominated world of advertising.
Nancy Price Webb rediscovered papers from her grand-mother that recounted remarkable experiences. As she read the documents, this story began to form in her thinking and the joy of writing she had known earlier sprang to life. Nancy lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her daughter.
