This is just a tiny excerpt from Jeanette MacDonald’s autobiography manuscript.

So, for the dreamers, the fighters, the champions of all that seems lost, it’s a hard road.

They’re for the ones who left us too soon, and the ones who were unable to defend themselves, in the time they had.
For the ladies, the true ladies that have gone before me, whose brilliance paved the way for me to have a voice- For J and K and G. Never back down, never give up, and to hell with the odds.
