"It is most enjoyable, as she has apparently kept a diary over the years as to people she met and places they traveled to when he was Ambassador to the UN, and special representative to China, and RNC Chair, and she moved so many times!. She surely kept busy with their five childen. Accompanied by a woman they employed to help with the children who were very small, who stayed with the family for many ,many years) Barbara drove back and forth from Houston to Kennabuckport every summer to visit family. The details of the little daughter's bout with the cancer, leukemia, was sad, but they did everything they could to get her the very best medical treatment, taking her to Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute in NYC, but she did not live.
Of course, in their position, she had to entertain a great deal, and George was always inviting as many as 15-20 for dinner each Sunday after church, as he , needed to be "the diplomat" at all times, and it paid off in many ways for him, his family and the country. She loves to read, and can write very well, and one just wants to keep on reading chapter after chapter. I am about half way of the book, but it is quite informative about a family with political ties, great energy, and very close. Mrs. Bush is a very strong woman, has raised a remarkable family,and I recommend it heartily, but also it is just a good read."
"Fantastic life story while in the White House. I admire the Bush's greatly for their beliefs, morals, ideals, sincerity, compassion, understanding, friendship with persons from every country that they worked with, strength under hardship, love of family, and untiring devotion and love for our country. President 41 has held more political positions than any other president in history. They also started at the bottom financially coming out of college. Barbara supported her husband wholeheartedly throughout the years with their many moves and work, and political positions, with her deep love and devotion to him, to her family, to her friends, and to her projects. It is amazing how she has kept friendships with the many people who have been part of her life from school, from work, and White House help, etc. She is generous and thoughtful to everyone she knows. She is a great role model as is President Bush."
"It was a pleasure for me to gain a new insight into the lives of George and Barbara Bush. I remember that period of history very well, and was very supportive of President Bush. I have gained a new respect and understanding of the many pressures put on our politicians. Thank you Barbara Bush for telling it as it really was and making it possible for me to be right there in such an interesting and important time in the history of our country. Our children and grandchildren should read this book, and I'm going to advise them accordingly. Thanks again, Barbara!"
