The intimate and startlingly candid memoir from one of America's most beloved and private first ladies.
In a captivating and compelling voice that ranks with many of our greatest memoirists, Laura Bush tells the story of her unique journey from dusty Midland, Texas, to the world stage and the White House. Her compassion, her sense of humor, her grace, and her uncommon willingness to bare her heart make Laura Bush's story deeply revelatory, beautifully rendered, and unlike any other First Lady's memoir ever written.
In her eight years at the White House, former first lady Laura Bush had a Mona Lisa quality to her. That smile â?? was it one of peace, one of joy, or was it a mask? In her new memoir, Spoken from the Heart, former first lady Laura Bush writes about her childhood in Midland, Texas. She also opens up about life in the White House. Michele Norris talks to the former first lady about her book and her life now, after leaving Washington. More at NPR.org
