Suanne (goodreadscomeuser_suanne) | 8 comments I want to read about Alice because she was such a character, far ahead of her time.


Chelsie (chelzlou) | 83 comments I find it extremely interesting to read about President’s families. They have to put on such a front for the people, and you find out all this stuff was going on with family members and no one knew at the time. I’ve loved reading about the Kennedy’s and Lincoln’s, I’d love the opportunity to read about the Roosevelt’s. I always remember my grandmother talking about the Roosevelt’s.

Andrea Stoeckel (andreastoeckel) No one said being president was easy.It must be terribly hard to grow up in the White House. On my bedroom wall I have a lovely lithograph of a rainbow over the Badlands in South Dakota which was where I had my first parish in 1989. I’m old enough at 62 to remember Miss Alice and even at her age she loved the notoriety she brought with her, maybe because she was kind of ignored as a child with a grieving father.

I also remember singing Alice Blue Gown as a recital piece when I was very young. I loved that idea, that it was a color named for an actual person!

Bonnye Reed (brf1948) | 11 comments I want to read American Princess because Alice was a woman before her time. She showed us how to gain independence, how to fit into a world that worships men, how to set her own course.

Wow! I have been trying to get an e-galley of this book for sometime now to read and review. For some reason, the publisher will not approve my request on NetGalley or Edelweiss even with my proven reviewer stats.

Smbergin | 6 comments I would love to read about Alice Roosevelt, because the only thing I "know" of her is that she was controversial and unconventional .... i.e., my kind of protagonist!

Jane (sweetbabyjane) I think I already posted on FB but would love to read this book because I don't know anything about her.
