Randy Taraborrelli comes Grace & Steel, the epic, hidden history of the exceptional women behind the greatest political dynasty of all time―the Bush family. Bestselling author J. Randy Taraborrelli reveals the unsung heroines of the inimitable Bush family dynasty: not only First Ladies Barbara and Laura, but other colorful women whose stories have been left out of history for far too long, including Barbara’s mother-in-law, the formidable Dorothy Bush; the enigmatic Columba and the controversial Sharon; and Laura’s twins, Jenna and Barbara. No matter the challenges related to power and politics, the women of the Bush dynasty always fought for equality in their marriages as they raised their children to be true to American values. In doing so, they inspired everyday Americans to do the same. Or, as Barbara Bush put it, “The future of this nation does not depend on what happens in the White House, but what happens in your house.”

Sadly today if anything remotely reads as admiring or flattering regarding a Republican politician or their family it will be ignored by the powers that be. Don't ignore this book. Taraborelli's research is impeccable and he adds many funny, poignant, unflattering and never revealed anecdotes which make this book a page turner. Like them or not the Bush family honored qualities of dignity and class that have disappeared in today's world. This book reminds the reader that they once mattered.

    Comprehensive, insightful, and sensitive, this strong narrative showcases the strengths and connections of multiple generations of Bush women. A must-read for fans of political history! This was an ARC.

    . This was interesting, and while nonfiction isn't usually my thing, it's been growing on me thanks to books like this. Brief chapters made it easy to pick up and put down, and easy to track the story. I learned some new things, and saw some things I already knew through a new perspective. No matter how you feel politically, there's something to be learned from strong, successful female leaders and in this case, three generations of them.

I loved the old stories from before my memory, they were particularly good.

    An accessible and compelling history of the Bush family that focuses on the women. Beginning with Dorothy Walker and Pauline Robinson and ending with their great granddaughters, Jenna and Barbara, most of this book covers Barbara and Laura Bush extensively. Taraborrelli has done a lot of research and has organized and presented it so that it is interesting as well as informative. This will be appreciated by readers who enjoy the histories of political families.

    This is a great book highlighting the Bush women and their extraordinary lives. It also mentions the Bush men and their personal and political journeys. I have long admired the Bush’s and was excited to read this book. Their family values speak volumes about the people they are. I love seeing the relationships they have across political lines (with the Obama’s and Clinton’s). They are truly an example of compassion and kindness.

    Having read several bios and memoirs on and by both Barbara and Laura Bush, I was pleased to learn new things from this book. While it still brought up somethings that are still questionable in my opinion, I thoroughly enjoyed this good read and how it peeled away the complicated layers of the relationships between these remarkable women.

    An interesting view of the Bush women. This includes information on Dorothy Bush, George H.W.'s mother, as well as Jenna Welch, Laura Bush's mother. It also touches on the wives of the Bush family members. It promotes a little more depth to our knowledge of Barbara and Laura. Some of these women were ahead of their time! Feminists before the feminist movement. I enjoyed it. An interesting view of the Bush women.

    It was good but too much about Barbara, about whom a lot of other books have been written. I was hoping there would be more on the younger generation but the other focus was Laura, which was good, but basically nothing about the other sisters-in-law. Well, very little.

    This was a great book. I would recommend it for anyone. It tells the story of the Bush family focusing on the women. It does not pull any punches as what really happened. The men in the family are just human, as we all are. 5 stars!
