Betty Boyd Caroli's engrossing and informative First Ladies is both a captivating read and an essential resource for anyone interested in the role of America's First Ladies. This expanded and updated fourth edition includes Laura Bush's tenure, Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid, and anin-depth look at Michelle Obama, one of the most charismatic and appealing First Ladies in recent history.Covering all forty-one women from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama and including the daughters, daughters-in-law, and sisters of presidents who sometimes served as First Ladies, Caroli explores each woman's background, marriage, and accomplishments and failures in office. This remarkably diverselot included Abigail Adams, whose "remember the ladies" became a twentieth-century feminist refrain; Jane Pierce, who prayed her husband would lose the election; Helen Taft, who insisted on living in the White House, although her husband would have preferred a judgeship; Eleanor Roosevelt, whoepitomized the politically involved First Lady; and Pat Nixon, who perfected what some have called "the robot image." They ranged in age from early 20s to late 60s; some received superb educations for their time, while others had little or no schooling. Including the courageous and adventurous, theemotionally unstable, the ambitious, and the reserved, these women often did not fit the traditional expectations of a presidential helpmate.Here then is an engaging portrait of how each First Lady changed the role and how the role changed in response to American culture. These women left remarkably complete records, and their stories offer us a window through which to view not only this particular sorority of women, but also Americanwomen in general.… (más)

First Ladies offers highly readable vinaigrettes into the lives of the various women who married the President of the United States, from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. Some are well known fiery trendsetters, such as Abigail Adams, Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton. Many were highly educated, including Lucy Hays, Grace Coolidge and Lou Hoover. Some were well traveled, like Louisa Adams. And nearly all stressed the importance of home and family. Whatever their backgrounds these women were at the center of Washington life and have often worked behind the scenes to help further their husbands careers or causes that they held dear. ( )
