She reveals the unbelievable twists and turns her life has taken in a new memoir."New York Times Women in the World

She now reflects on the quality of her independence and each turn that brought her to its realization in a remarkable story well worth reading."—Booklist

“Jill Dodd's story is lively, provocative, informative, and impish. I read it with the greatest relish, and recommend The Currency of Love to all who love an entertaining book. Despite the sadness of Jill's early life, she overcame all obstacles, developing into a young woman who lived life to the fullest. I honestly could not put it down!"—Jean Sasson, New York Times Bestselling Author

Ultimately, Jill goes on to create the ROXY brand but its what happens between her past and present which is nearly unbelievable and worth your time to read."Hello Dollface
