Sort order. May 16, Carol Bakker rated it really liked it Shelves: , biography , family , history. I learned a lot reading this book, first of all respect for Pat Nixon. But how does one describe the circumstances wherein a girl—13 years old—nurses and loses her mother to cancer, then in the space of five years nurses and buries her dad; works full time to help one, then another brother go to college; enters USC at age 22 and graduates cum laude three years later after working multiple jobs? Her brothers, her husband, her daughters, her sons-in-law, her grandchildren.
That is a major accomplishment when you have lived life in the public eye and needed to be absent from family often. Yes, this is a sympathetic biography. Her default mode with crowds was to shake hands, look in the eyes: connect. She was a cool cucumber in life-threatening situations.
Campaigning is grueling: sometimes three solo appearances during the day and an evening with her husband. Entertaining dignitaries non-stop. She never shrank from what needed to be done.
Flowers, colors, fashion, design. In her later years, sometimes five substantial books a week. Sep 08, Jennifer Nanek rated it really liked it. This was a book I've had on my shelf for many years and once I finally started reading it it took me a long time to finish. But I certainly enjoyed reading it. I enjoyed reading a lot about Pat Nixon's early life growing up and her struggles as a young person. I also enjoyed reading the details about her life and what she did in the White House most of which I didn't know anything about. Obviously the story is going to be a bit biased as it's written by her daughter.
But you can see the love and This was a book I've had on my shelf for many years and once I finally started reading it it took me a long time to finish. But you can see the love and protectiveness within that family. Another flaw that I see, very common in biographies, is that she references names and events as significant but I have absolutely no idea who they are or what they mean.

The author is presuming everybody reading the book remembers the Nixon era. However some of us are too young. Biographers need to keep this in mind when telling their stories. I very much enjoyed the book I learned a lot.
May 19, Mary E. Lovely and tireless! I so enjoyed reading about Mrs. I appreciate the life she led of being supportive and strong for her husband and the American people. I am amazed at what she had to go through and appalled at a media and public that would lie and believe lies about her and the president. Thank you to the Nixons' for the desire to help the country, which they did greatly, and to Julie for writing this book! Feb 09, Gina Lane rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. I enjoyed this book by the President's daughter.
I had always admired Mrs. Nixon and this book did not disappoint.

It also gave me another view of President Nixon post Watergate despite the Author's bias. Orphaned in high school, she had to care for two brothers, the house, and the family truck farm. Through perseverance and independence, she was able to eventually make enough money to go to college and become a teacher. While trying out for the local theater, she met Richard Nixon and they eventually married. Nixon recalls what life was like through numerous election campaigns and during Watergate as well as being a wife and mother.
