The Leading Lady

the leading lady sullivan tom white betty

And she gave the entire Sullivan family—wife Patty, daughter Blythe, and son Tom, Jr. Most important, she enabled Tom to be truly independent for the first time in his life. Here, too, is how Betty rescued this gallant lady in distress and how caring, courageous Dinah became a full-fledged member of Betty's family overnight, with a brand-new job to do. Emmy award-winning actress Betty White may be a hit on the popular sitcom The Golden Girls; Tom Sullivan, bestselling author of If You Could See What I Hear may have made his mark as a multitalented performer, songwriter, and lecturer—but the real star of this heartwarming story is an extraordinary dog named Dinah. Am hoping it might be big enough to pass on to my mother whose eyesight, much like Dinah's, isn't quite what it used to be.
