Reflections by Barbara Bush
Book DescriptionPicking up where her first memoir left off, Barbara Bush revisits the fascinating period between the two Bush administrations, from the end of President George H.W. Bush's presidency in January 1993 to the inauguration of her son, George W. Bush, eight years later. As she takes readers through each of those years, she offers a thoughtful inside look at her life with her husband through touching and often amusing stories about their travels, charity work, hobbies, and relationships with their children and grandchildren. She writes with warmth and humour about hitting the campaign trail with her sons and her interactions with VIPs from around the world. Her 'renowned feistiness' comes through as she touches on controversial issues such as her husband's resignation from the NRA and the hypocrisy of certain politicians. She also reflects on the experience of having a president for a son and discusses the family's reactions to September 11 and its aftermath. Not since Abigail Adams has one woman been both the wife and mother of a president, and in this book, Mrs. Bush shares a unique historical perspective on American politics and family life that will captivate readers of every political persuasion.
