From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the groundbreaking backstairs look at the White House, The Residence, comes an intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the First Ladies, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama and Melania Trump. One of the most underestimated—and challenging—positions in the world, the First Lady of the United States must be many things: an inspiring leader with a forward-thinking agenda of her own; a savvy politician, skilled at navigating the treacherous rapids of Washington; a wife and mother operating under constant scrutiny; and an able CEO responsible for the smooth operation of countless services and special events at the White House. Now, as she did in her smash #1 bestseller The Residence, former White House correspondent Kate Andersen Brower draws on a wide array of untapped, candid sources—from residence staff and social secretaries to friends and political advisers—to tell the stories of the ten remarkable women who have defined that role since 1960. Brower offers new insights into this privileged group of remarkable women, including Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Patricia Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama. The stories she shares range from the heartwarming to the shocking and tragic, exploring everything from the first ladies’ political crusades to their rivalries with Washington figures; from their friendships with other first ladies to their public and private relationships with their husbands. She also offers insight as to what Melania Trump might hope to accomplish as First Lady. Candid and illuminating, this first group biography of the modern first ladies provides a revealing look at life upstairs and downstairs at the world’s most powerful address.

First Women by Kate Andersen Brower | Summary & Analysis Preview: Kate Andersen Brower’s First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies examines how women from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama have negotiated the personal and political challenges of being married to the president of the United States. The women who have served as first lady in the modern era have been very different. Jackie Kennedy was a style icon; Lady Bird Johnson was adamantly not one. Nancy Reagan was proud to give up her career in acting in order to support her husband’s ambitions; Hillary Clinton extended her own legal and political career by working in Bill Clinton’s administration. Rosalynn Carter liked attending cabinet meetings and being in the thick of politics; Michelle Obama has mostly disliked her time in the White House and has been waiting eagerly to return to civilian life. For all their differences, the first ladies share common experiences… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
