Donna Hanover is the former First Lady of the City of New York (1994-2001), an Ivy League-educated journalist, actress, and host of the nationally syndicated television program, Famous Homes & Hideaways, going into its fifth season. Previously, she was a correspondent and anchor for FOX's Good Day New York and WPIX-TV in New York, and TV stations throughout the country. She's known for the articles she's written for Good Housekeeping, her seven-year stint on The Food Network, and her roles as Ruth Carter Stapleton (The People vs. Larry Flynt) and Judge Deborah Bourke (Law and Order). She and Ed Oster married on August 3, 2003.From Publishers Weekly:
Shortly after her divorce from former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Hanover reunited with the high school boyfriend who had dumped her during their freshman year at Stanford. He apologized for the breakup, and they rekindled their love affair and married a year later. Upon learning that her experience wasn't unusual, Hanover began interviewing couples with similar stories. Some were separated less than 10 years, others for decades; many were divorced, raising the question of what would have happened if they'd followed their hearts to begin with. There's no consensus on that from the experts, according to Hanover, but many will find it hard to disagree with the thesis that first love is often the most lasting. A television host and journalist, Hanover writes in a chatty, accessible style, adopting the tone of the experienced best friend. She can be corny, but she's a realist: she includes a chapter on what happens when rekindled romances go sour the second time around. The sociology and individual stories don't always mesh well, but the anecdotes are so touching and the overall message so inspiring, you'd have to be heartless not to feel hopeful after reading this book. 16 pages of b&w photos not seen by PW.
