Not sure why it took so long to read this book ... not a thriller, but I related to the history it was revealing and enjoyed the descriptions of Mamie. She was never one of my favorites during our lifetimes together because if felt she was "stuck up." So it was nice to read this book and see her from another perspective ... Her granddaughter's or daughter-in-law's. The revelation I had was the way the generals and presidents were treated during that time compared to my impression of how they are ...more

Really enjoyed this book about an amazing couple. Learned a great deal. Glad to fill myself in on a bit of our history and the people that made it.
