Each presidential wife or acting first lady gets her due in this collection of brief biographical sketches. If you have an interest in first ladies this is a good starting point. Don't expect too much depth but do expect to have your curiosity piqued by more than one first lady. If this sends readers into the stacks for biographies on either the first ladies or the presidents, then this slight tome has done it's job.
