Includes bibliographical references (p. [361]-409) and index.Introduction -- 1: Setting precedents: the first Presidents' wives (1789-1829) -- 2: Young substitutes for First Ladies (1829-1869) -- 3: Three exceptions: Sarah Childress Polk, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Julia Dent Grant -- 4: Limited promise of the " New Woman" (1877-1901) -- 5: Office of First Lady: a twentieth-century development -- 6: Paradoxical 1920s -- 7: Breaking precedents and reaffirming old ones (1933-1961) -- 8: Turbulent sixties -- 9: New dimensions to the job of First Lady (1974-1993) -- 10: New generation in the White House (1993-2008) -- 11: Turning points -- Notes -- Appendices -- Index -- Photographs follow pages 118, 182, and 262.From the Publisher: Betty Boyd Caroli's engrossing and informative First Ladies is both a captivating read and an essential resource for anyone interested in the role of America's First Ladies. This expanded and updated fourth edition includes Laura Bush's tenure, Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid, and an in-depth look at Michelle Obama, one of the most charismatic and appealing First Ladies in recent history. Covering all forty-one women from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama and including the daughters, daughters-in-law, and sisters of presidents who sometimes served as First Ladies, Caroli explores each woman's background, marriage, and accomplishments and failures in office. This remarkably diverse lot included Abigail Adams, whose "remember the ladies" became a twentieth-century feminist refrain; Jane Pierce, who prayed her husband would lose the election; Helen Taft, who insisted on living in the White House, although her husband would have preferred a judgeship; Eleanor Roosevelt, who epitomized the politically involved First Lady; and Pat Nixon, who perfected what some have called "the robot image." They ranged in age from early 20s to late 60s; some received superb educations for their time, while others had little or no schooling. Including the courageous and adventurous, the emotionally unstable, the ambitious, and the reserved, these women often did not fit the traditional expectations of a presidential helpmate. Here then is an engaging portrait of how each First Lady changed the role and how the role changed in response to American culture. These women left remarkably complete records, and their stories offer us a window through which to view not only this particular sorority of women, but also American women in general.

American woman : the transformation of the modern First Lady, from Hillary Clinton to Jill Biden / by Rogers, Katie,author.;
"The first definitive exploration of the role of the twenty-first century First Lady, painting a comprehensive portrait of Jill Biden and the evolution of the First Lady's role from ceremonial figurehead to political operative--from a White House correspondent for The New York Times. Since the Clinton era, tectonic shifts in media, politics, and pop culture have all redefined expectations of First Ladies, even as the boundaries set upon them have at times remained frustratingly anachronistic. With sharp insights and dozens of firsthand interviews with major players in the Biden, Obama, Trump, Bush, and Clinton orbits, including Jill Biden and Hillary Clinton, New York Times White House correspondent Katie Rogers traces, from the dawn of the twenty-first century, the evolution of the role of First Lady into a modern power broker with the potential to deliver on behalf of the president, while also painting a full portrait of Jill Biden. Dr. Jill Biden began her journey toward public life in 1975 as a separated twenty-three-year-old who caught the eye of a widowed Senator Joe Biden. Recovering from her own heartbreak after a failed marriage, she found a man who was still grieving. He drew her into his close-knit family, and, in return, she knitted his life together after unspeakable tragedy, raised his children as her own, and stood by his side through three presidential campaigns. Along the way, they weathered shared tragedies of their own. Over the past four decades, Jill Biden has nurtured her husband's ambitions and emerged as a prime guardian of one of the most insular operations in modern politics. But she has also struggled with low approval ratings, critical headlines, and a changing Washington much different from the one that she and her husband first encountered together in the late 1970s. She is a disciplined First Lady by design, mirroring her family's guarded approach to the public and the media. She is also the only First Lady in history to work outside of the White House in a paid role as a teacher, a choice that was received with a mix of acclaim and misogyny. It was a decision that will inevitably clear a path for future first spouses to keep their chosen careers. Through deep reporting and new correspondence, American Woman is the first book to paint a comprehensive portrait of Jill Biden and grapple with the idea of what the role of a modern First Lady should be"--Includes bibliographical references and index.Mermaids -- Ambition -- Tradition -- Expectation -- Reluctance -- "The professor must teach" -- "The kind of woman I'd like to meet" -- "A force to be reckoned with" -- "A quiet asset" -- "I remember every slight" -- "They want you to be strong."

Say nothing : a novel / by Parks, Brad,1974-;
"Judge Scott Sampson doesn't brag about having a perfect life, but the evidence is clear: A prestigious job. A beloved family. On an ordinary Wednesday afternoon, he is about to pick up his six-year-old twins to go swimming when his wife, Alison, texts him that she'll get the kids from school instead. It's not until she gets home later that Scott realizes she doesn't have the children. And she never sent the text. Then the phone rings, and every parent's most chilling nightmare begins. A man has stolen Sam and Emma. A man who warns the judge to do exactly as he is told in a drug case he is about to rule on. If the judge fails to follow his instructions, the consequences for the children will be dire. For Scott and Alison, the kidnapper's call is only the beginning of a twisting, gut-churning ordeal of blackmail, deceit, and terror; a high-profile trial like none the judge or his wife has ever experienced. Their marriage falters. Suspicions and long-buried jealousies rise to the surface. Fractures appear. Lies are told. Through it all, Scott and Alison will stop at nothing to get their children back, no matter the cost to themselves ... or to each other."--Amazon.com.
