Reviews
"I couldn't put it down. Robin Schepper's life story weaves a personal history of growing up in New York City in the 1970s, a lifetime [spent] searching for her biological father until Ancestry.com and 23andMe provided her with answers, and [a career] at the highest level of American politics, breaking down barriers for women in that field for my generation." --Sweta Chakraborty, president, US operations, of We Don't Have Time and climate, behavioral scientist"Finding My Way is more than a book. It is storytelling from an author who brings readers into her closest circle of friends, sharing the details of her life that [give her] questions, challenge her values, and demonstrate her capacity to achieve and willingness to love in spite of the obstacles in her path from her earliest days of childhood. Schepper trusts her readers with her story the way so many . . . in her family, community, and profession have trusted her. We're all the better for knowing her story and will be less fearful of our own because of her courage." --Kiki McLean, public affairs and political strategist"Written with gravitas, the memoir Finding My Way is about leading a purposeful life and imparting knowledge with dignity and honesty." --Clarion Reviews
