I absolutely loved this book. I am not a fan of the Bush family, however after reading this book I have ordered the Laura Bush biography to find out what was fiction and what was real. This story is written wonderfully and it is very gripping. It is over 500 pages and it did take me fours days to read (which is somewhat unusual for me)but it really could have been longer because some very important p[arts were rushed (such as the elections and decisions to run). In any case I finally got my copy from the library after sitting on the waiting list for months. i am sorry I do not have a copy to share as I know that many others will be as touched as I was to read such a wonderful book. I will be checking on more from this author.
