School Library Journal
Author Anthony, a speech writer for Nancy Reagan, examines the contributions of Reagan, as well as of Dolley Madison, Mary Lincoln, Nellie Taft, Florence Harding, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, and Hillary Rodham Clinton. As Betty Ford writes in her foreword, these first ladies worked both quietly and forcefully for the things they believed were important.
