Ross has written a straightforward biography of an interesting, but not outstanding first lady. She was no Eleanor or Jackie, more of a Laura. The book includes the striking red dress she war (almost a flapper) holding the lead for a great looking dog. I bought it to fill out my collection of first lady biographies to go with my doll collection of the same.

Published in 1962, the book was written by Ishbel Ross (b.1895). Ross was a journalist who worked on the New York Tribune, known then as the "best woman journalist" in New York. "She covered everything from dance marathons and the Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue to the hottest crime stories of the era [including the Lindbergh kidnapping], and did in such clear, compact prose that her editors in time forgot all about her sex in choosing her assignments."

The biography is a model of her prose; additionally, Ross puts Grace Coolidge into context by giving the reader an excellent portrait of the times--the Roaring Twenties. ( )
