Beskrivelse

Bestselling author J. Randy Taraborrelli reveals the unsung heroines of the inimitable Bush family dynasty: not only First Ladies Barbara and Laura, but other colorful women whose stories have been left out of history for far too long, including Barbara's mother-in-law, the formidable Dorothy Bush; the enigmatic Columba and the controversial Sharon; and Laura's twins, Jenna and Barbara. No matter the challenges related to power and politics, the women of the Bush dynasty always fought for equality in their marriages as they raised their children to be true to American values. In doing so, they inspired everyday Americans to do the same. Or, as Barbara Bush put it, "The future of this nation does not depend on what happens in the White House, but what happens in your house."Details from the book include:-The tragedy Barbara faced in burying her three-year-old daughter, Robin, and her struggle with depression over the decades that followed.-The tragic night a teenage Laura Bush accidentally killed a good friend-a story she did not discuss publicly for decades.-The revelation of the affair that almost doomed George HW's hopes for the presidency. -The truth behind the fraught relationship between Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush that culminated in an angry phone call during which Barbara told her she would never speak to her again-and she didn't.
