Publisher's Summary

"To begin with I was in love and I am in love so that's not hard," Barbara Bush told her granddaughter Ellie LeBlond Sosa on her porch in Kennebunkport, Maine. 

Sosa had asked for the secret to her and President George H.W. Bush's 77-year love affair that withstood World War II separation, a leap of faith into the oil fields of West Texas, the painful loss of a child, a political climb to the highest office, and after the White House, the transition back to a "normal" life. 

Through a lifetime's worth of letters and stories, Sosa and co-author Kelly Anne Chase paint the portrait of the enduring relationship of George and Barbara Bush. Sharing intimate interviews with the Bushes and family friends, this is a never-before-seen look into the private life of a very public couple.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Loved the insider's view....

Reagan and Bush have always seemed like the last of a bread of men that were in office ro serve the country rather than their party or selves. It was great to get an insiders view of Barbara and George's lives. They may have been born with a "silver spoon" but their lives still had challenges, ups and downs, but it was great to hear about some of those and how they handled them. It sounds like they were great people and even better as a couple.

cliffs notes

Reads like a cliff's notes of other writings on the Bush's. Very little new information.
