For today's twenty-somethings the possibilities and opportunities are exhilarating, limitless and sometimes confusing with no clear-cut paths for the major life choices one must make after college graduation. In this new gift book, inspired by a commencement speech she gave in 2014, the former First Lady of Massachusetts and wife of 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Ann Romney puts forth eight key life lessons, the pieces of advice she wishes someone had given her when she graduated college.

The eight life lessons are Ann Romney's candid and inspirational words of wisdom with stories and examples gathered from her life's journey through adversity and success with windows of insight from the many people who have inspired, encouraged and influenced her in her public and private life.
