Baker & Taylor A collection of correspondences between Nancy and Ronald Reagan allows a glimpse into their lives and illustrates the deep love and compassion they have for each other.
Blackwell North Amer Starting in 1950, shortly after they met, and up through the 1990s, Ronald Reagan wrote letters to his wife, Nancy. In this book, those letters are woven into a portrait of a long and loving marriage, as Nancy Reagan shares not only the letters but also her reflections on them, and on the life that she and Ronald Reagan shared, from courtship, young marriage, and the White House years on through to her life today. This book offers insight into one of America's most famous couples and into the love story they lived. Through letters and reflections, the characters, personalities, and lives of an American president and his first lady are revealed. Over half a century, we see how Ronald Reagan wrote from the heart to the person he was closest to. Nancy Reagan comments on the letters, and writes with love and insight about her husband and the many phases of their life together. She describes how they met and fell in love and how their love grew over a long, eventful, and happy marriage, and she recalls the central role that letters, as well as cards and telegrams, played in their lives. The private life of this couple comes alive in this American story.
