I just got done reading an AMAZING book, so I thought I’d share.
I have been holding on to the book American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld for a couple months now, ever since The Nerdy Katie recommended it.
The book follows the life of a character named Alice Lindgren from childhood, through her early life as a librarian, her mid life as a mother and supporter of a political husband and then finally as The First Lady of the United States.
I’m going to admit that I got the book without knowing ANYTHING about it, but I frequently do that with books.
Halfway through the book, I thought to myself, “Huh, this really seems to resemble the Bush family and Laura Bush”.
Well, after some research when I was finished, I was right. The book is fiction but loosely based on some biographies of Laura Bush.
No matter your political party, it’s a very fascinating story. About 30 pages in, I got that feeling, like “Wow. This is going to be a really good book”.
I highly recommend reading American Wife.
