Laura Bush speaks from the heart
Like her mother-in-law before her, Laura Bush, wife of George W has written a memoir about life - before and during - her White House years.
“Spoken from the Heart” is the name of the book and according to publisher Scribner it will provide readers with:
“A rare witness to the private moments of one of our country’s most consequential presidencies, and as a first lady who has maintained a notable level of discretion, her memoir will provide a candid and personal perspective, and an enduring record, of the years that have already determined the course of the 21st century.”
It’s also said to reveal some of the First Lady’s most “dark” and “guilty” secrets, including details of how she killed a school friend in a car crash when she was 17.
And for anyone not committed to the idea of reading the book in its entirety, US website The Daily Beast has put together a 12-point “speed read” of the most “suprising revelations”.
