  • (1888PressRelease) August 28, 2010 - HOUSTON, TX - Co-founder of the National Alliance to End Homelessness and wife of former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, Susan G. Baker tells all in her new book, Passing It On: An Autobiography with Spirit (Bright Sky Press, September 2010). On an intensely personal front, Baker narrates how the despair and brokenness from the failure of her first marriage encouraged her spiritual growth from which she emerged stronger, happier, and better able to navigate all of life.

    An intimate journey through the spirituality and politics behind a life spent in high political circles, Passing It On explores Susan's difficulties in divorce, remarriage, and blending families. Digging beneath the fašade of success, Susan relives her childhood growing up on a ranch in Texas, her first marriage to the heir of a prominent Houston family, her struggle to blend seven children into one family with husband James Baker, and the addition of a bonus baby four years later. With honesty and integrity, she addresses the difficulties she experienced in the rise of James Baker's career from Houston lawyer and presidential campaign guru to Secretary of State. Yet Baker also celebrates the wonderful opportunities and experiences she had as a result of that career, including her work tackling important social concerns and the joy of seeing the fractious family of "his and hers" become a loving "ours".

    Navigating the waters of Texas, Washington, D.C., and the world at large, Susan found that her faith in God gave her the strength to survive constant, unpredictable changes and reach out to people of all faiths and walks of life. Exploring her stormy relationship with God, Susan offers her autobiography with the hope that others might learn from her mistakes, find encouragement in her spiritual journey, and share a few laughs and tears along the way.
