Synopsis: Picking up where her earlier bestselling memoir left off, Barbara Bush begins this second volume with the inauguration of her son, President George W. Bush, in January 2001. She then flashes back eight years to President Clinton's inauguration, when President George H.W. Bush and Mrs Bush were leaving the White House. Mrs Bush takes us through each of those next eight years, relating her and President George Bush Snr's inner lives through touching and often very amusing stories about their travels, their charity work, their hobbies and their relationships with their five children and thirteen grandchildren. In the Epilogue, she reflects on the experience of having a President for a son, and discusses the family's reactions to September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Typical of Barbara Bush, this memoir is filled with wise and perceptive observations, as well as with the humorous anecdotes for which this beloved and admired former First Lady is well known. Not since Abigail Adams has one woman been both the wife and the mother to a President, giving her a unique historical perspective. Mrs Bush's millions of admirers are sure to delight in her second volume of memoirs, told in her warm and funny voice and filled with interesting stories from the past decade of her full and fascinating life.
