America has never had a First Lady quite like Laura Bush. Though she was shy and reserved at first, everything changed on September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were crushed by terrorist attacks. In the aftermath, Laura rose to the occasion, providing comfort and reassurance, and has since become a beacon of hope and strength to the nation.

Laura, by noted biographer Antonia Felix, is the first profile of this remarkable, highly influential woman. At once probing and revelatory, Laura shows why Laura Bush is the right First Lady for our uncertain times, helping the American people regain their footing after our tragic loss. This important biography will serve as a lasting tribute for years to come.

Antonia Felix's many interviews reveal a quiet, centered woman, who from her early childhood in Texas to the White House has risen to the challenges put in front of her. Travel with Laura Bush through her happy childhood to the tragedy that strengthened her, through her courtship and marriage to a dashing young Navy Pilot and the raising of her twin daughters, to the White House and the aftermath of the recent attacks. Probing and revelatory, Laura is a fitting tribute to our First Lady, showing why Laura Bush is the right person in the right place for our uncertain times, helping the American people regain their confidence and strength after the devastating losses of Spetmeber 11.

    " After reading American Wife, I wanted to know more about the real Laura Bush. This book really didn't shed much light on her. Yes, she's a librarian and quiet and calm. She loves her husband and likes to keep her opinions on policy to herself. I pretty much already knew that. "

    " A book with hardly any substance.
    You do not get to know the real Laura Bush at all. Even some of the more tragic parts of her life are glossed over.
