She also makes no bones about people she disagreed with and her meetings with Raisa Gorbachev bear testimont to an ability to carry on regardless.You go girl! What other similar situations did she leave out I wonder.Her opinions of Roslyn Carter were interesting and uncatty,considering the circumstances both women deserve a medal for their restraint. I read this book by chance soon after the joint briefly worded statement from Mr & Mrs Reagan about the Presidents illness was announced to the world, "...for me personally it is the start of a long goodbye..." so tried not to let this affect my views. Nancy Reagan admits to a faults on her part and actions she regretted but I was pleasantly surprised about this revealing biography of a public person who had been vilified in the press for doing what she did best,trying to protect the interests of the dearest person in her life. Would that most of us could say the same.
The main thing that strikes you throughout this book is her strength, sensitivity, and love for her husband. She brought a level of dignity and class to the White House and as subsequent events have proven, she maintained it beautifully long after she was out of the limelight. The way she cared for her husband throughout his long illness showed a devotion that we aren't used to seeing in marriages, especially very public ones.
Even though this book is a few years old, you will learn much about the wonderful lady. If you are a fan of hers or just curious, there is much in this book that is enlightening and entertaining.

I thought this book was okay. It's just my opinion but if Nancy Reagan would have concentrated more on her children and less on her infatuation with her husband. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Sherron
