This was a remarkable book about a woman I previously had no knowledge of - her life story is incredible. Alice Roosevelt Longworth died in 1980 at the age of 96 - her life spanned the most important events of the 20th century and she was INVOLVED in them in a way most women of her generation (heck even MY generation) never experienced. This was one of the most engaging biographies I have ever read. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a history buff, or who loves to read about American politics in the 20th century - she was a major insider and statesmen from the time she was a teenager until the day she died. I didn't agree with all of her positions, but I certainly finished the book with a great respect and admiration for Alice.

Karmel Sounds fantastic Janille! A great combination of two things I love... history and inspiring, strong women! I'm adding this to my must read list (hopefully they have it on CD for my ipod... right now my garden is begging for every spare moment)!
