I picked this book up only because I read American Wife and heard that it was loosely written with Laura Bush in mind and I wanted to know what was her story. Not being a Bush supporter I thought this book will drag and I will hate it. i was quite surprised, she is a lovely woman with a quiet and reserved story, but it is telling in that. I would suggest regardless of your political views to read this book, it is quick and well written. It may even make you feel for the outgoing president and his wife, they are real people just like us!
