Loosely based on the life of Laura Bush. Very interesting take on how we can't always help who we fall in love with and how our inner strength is so important.

In her fictionalized biography of Laura Bush, Sittenfeld pulls you in from the start with her understanding of time and place, as well as her creation of a complex, intriguing protagonist. Despite a weak final section, you will have a hard time putting this one down.
