America s First Ladies have served as role models in all phases of the country s history. Some driven, some tragic, some widely beloved, and some publicly mocked, White House wives have rarely confined themselves to sitting around being gracious, even in times when that was all that was expected of them. More than one learned that being the First Lady could be as fierce a job as the one her husband held. Many found the personal steel to advance controversial ideas, to fight on the president s behalf, or simply to weather years of intense public scrutiny.
Accompanied by engaging historical images and presented in a Q&A format that is equally entertaining as a pub-style quiz or as a solitary read, Women in the White House explores nearly four dozen lives that turn out to be unexpectedly fascinating, often moving, and occasionally outrageous.
Size: 3 1/4 x 4 inches.
