Originally published: Waterville, Me.: Thorndike Press, 2010.
From the Publisher:
In a candid memoir, the former first lady discusses the frantic and fearful months after 9/11, her trip to Afghanistan, her advocacy on behalf of women in oppressed countries, her love of libraries, what really happens in the White House and much more, in a book with 24 pages of full-color photos. (Biography & autobiography). Reprint.
Annotation:
While the role of First Lady remains undefined, that could be a plus, as each First Lady begins with a blank slate and the opportunity to shape her agenda. Laura Bush seemed comfortable in the White House, and, over the course of two terms, she defined areas that were central to her interests, especially education and women's issues. In SPOKEN FROM THE HEART, Laura Bush provides her own memories of 9/11 and its aftermath, recounts her many travels abroad, including to Afghanistan, and reveals how the White House operates on a day-to-day basis. Includes over 20 photographs.While the role of First Lady remains undefined, that could be a plus, as each First Lady begins with a blank slate and the opportunity to shape her agenda.

Praise

"Laura Bush's new memoir...is really two books. The first is a deeply felt, keenly observed account of her childhood and youth in Texas--an account that captures a time and place with exacting emotional precision and that demonstrates how Mrs. Bush's lifelong love of books has imprinted her imagination. The second book is a thoroughly conventional autobiography by a politician's wife....The opening sections of this book...are as revealing and evocative as the later ones are guarded. Writing with impressive recall, Mrs. Bush conjures her hometown, Midland, Tex., with enormous detail, lyricism and feeling." - Michiko Kakutani 04/30/2010
