Dina does an excellent job taking us through her brief marriage to the former governor of the state of New Jersey. Her writing appears to be candid, and straight from the heart. Hopefully her strength prevails as she journeys on in this new chapter of her life, raising her child, and finding her own path, like many women before her that have been scorned, and left with little trust. Dina's friends and family were very supportive as she embarked on her path to being a single mom. I read this book very quickly. Good read!
Meh. Another, feel sorry for me biography.
This first hand account of the First Lady of New Jersey when her husband came out to the world about being a Gay American. Interesting.
This is a great book for women interested in politics. It will give you some insight into women on the political forefront. Aside from that it is a heartfelt account of a woman's desire for happiness and love turned into utter humiliation and despair. The sad part of this book is that once women are set in their ways of having the perfect life to outside viewers, the rug gets pulled out from under them and they have to face the ugly truth. That truth is that no marriage is perfect, even if they try to make it so. Ms. Matos McGreevey was a great inspiration and source of knowledge to me. I loved this scandal from the beginning. As a staunch republican I was not a fan of James McGreevey, former NJ governor. I really thought this a crazy and wild story when it broke, but once I realized how many people were betrayed and hurt by this man it opened up a floodgate for me to want to fight corruption in politics. This really is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to all readers, especially female ones.
