Simply Barbara Bush: A Portrait Of Americas Candid First Lady :
This is Donnie Radcliffe's SIMPLY BARBARA BUSH: A PORTRAIT OF AMERICA'S CANDID FIRST LADY. This 236 page paperback was published in 1990. From the back cover we read, "The first book-length biography of the First Lady brings us an intimate portrait of the woman who, despite the fact her husband was running for president, refused to diet, dye her hair, or dress in designer clothes. Based on dozens of interviews with Barbara Bush, her family, and her friends, this fascinating book explores her remarkable life: her storybook romance with young Navy flier George Bush; living in -one-half of a whorehouse' when George first started out in the rough-and-tumble Texas oil town after the war; the heartbreak of losing her daughter Robin to leukemia; and the challenge of always being in the spotlight. A warm, involving, and deeply moving story, SIMPLY BARBARA shows why 'everyone's grandmother' has put her indelible print on the American scene..and on America's heart."
