This book is about the adverse and intriguing story on the controversial life of Imelda Romualdez Marcos, former First Lady and now a member of Congress representing Ilocos Norte’s Second Congressional District in the Philippines, and her poetic and creative ideas in a troubled world. A product of inquiry and the demand for a fair and accurate narration and exposition of contemporary historical events, this book is Imelda’s vivid and dramatic story in a series of interviews about her pain and joy; about her glory and solitude; about her wealth and deprivation; and about her riveting recollections in politics and love with President Ferdinand E. Marcos, during which time and up to now she endured persecution, discriminatory investigations, court trials, sadness, betrayal and relentless public humiliation. No living woman in history has experienced that much ordeal in the hands of her hateful and vengeful tormentors as Mrs. Marcos did. Ousted with her husband, President Marcos, from power in the so-called 1986 EDSA uprising, exiled her entire family to Hawaii, deprived of their homeland and worldly possessions and then ridiculously charged with 901 criminal and civil cases, including violations of the dreadful US Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) in New York for which the judge and the jury found her innocent of all the charges.
