Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0931791022, Paperback)

This is Volume II of the Camp David Diaries’ eleven-volume series, a tantalizing approach to historical fiction combining women, politics, intimacies and the keeping of secret diaries at Camp David. Volume II – Bess Truman (1945-1953), offers a peak into Bess Truman’s life in the White House. It is the era of the Atomic Bomb, the Marshall Plan, the McCarthy Hearings and a Baby Boom. Volume II contains comments by each succeeding First Lady (Mamie, Jackie, Lady Bird, Pat, Betty, Rosalynn, Nancy, Barbara and Hillary), who also have diaries of their own (Volumes III – XI). Over the years the women have created a First Ladies’ primer in which they share lessons learned, and give tips on how to handle their job, the press, the public, the White House staff, their children and, most of all, their husbands. The shear voyeuristic nature of diaries is appealing, but when they are about the last eleven First Ladies, they are even more intriguing. This is history with an attitude.
