Spoken From the Heart

I am currently reading Spoken From the Heart, by Laura Bush. She is an exceptional writer; including tidbits of history with her stories, which I find especially interesting. Her description of her husband's first inauguration made me feel as if I were there. She takes the reader back to 9-11, sharing poignant stories such as a group of Jewish women who went shopping for muslim women too afraid to go out. Another is placing daughter, Jenna, next to Vladimir Putin's wife at a dinner because both could speak Spanish. This conveyed to me what a thoughtful and caring person she is. I can't wait to finish it.
