3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Donna D. Conrad on August 11, 2005
A must read for anyone who values sexual freedom and personal choice. As a woman who came of age during the sixties I have benefitted greatly from the courage and tenacity of Dell Williams and other women who fought in the trenches to insure sexual equality and the right of personal choice.

Revolution in the Garden flows with grace and humor through the monumental events of a woman's life who changed the way women perceive their sexuality. Dell's victories and losses, chronicled by author Lynn Vannucci, bring to the reader an appreciation for the freedoms we as modern women often take for granted.

Every women who prefers independence to subservience owes it to themselves to read this book. Every man who appreciates women who can be equal partners in a relationship will benefit from reading Dell's story.

Revolution in the Garden is a testimonial to perseverance, ingenuity and most important to love, for others and for oneself.

Dell Williams is a dynamo of a woman who made the world safe for orgasms and the women who love them. She saw a need and took it upon herself to do something to fill it. For her insight, determination and spunk, we sexually satisfied women are most ecstatically grateful!
