Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In My First Ladies, Nancy Clarke reveals the touching, funny, and illuminating story of what it was like to serve under six administrations and to help each first lady find her own personal style when it came to planning flower designs, state dinners, and holiday festivities in the White House. Learn how Nancy gave comfort to Nancy Reagan when she discovered she had cancer and how she helped Laura Bush to gain the confidence to select bright, bold flower arrangements over the more conservative palettes she used in her first years as first lady. See the deep bond that developed between Nancy and Barbara Bush and feel what it was like to be standing in a bunker right next to President Bush in the days following 9/11. Only Nancy can reveal the inside story of what it was like to work for more than thirty years in the White House she called her second home.

Synopsis:

My First Ladies reveals little stories and details of what it's like to be behind the scenes at the White House during six different presidential administrations.
