Summary

Lady in Red is the long-awaited collection of behind-the-scenes stories of one of the most influential first ladies in modern history - Nancy Reagan. Lovingly compiled by longtime close confidante and aide Sheila Tate, the audiobook provides a rare and much-anticipated look into the personal life of the president's wife, from her daily routines and travels as first lady to her friendships and deep influence in the Reagan White House. 

Lady in Red depicts a nuanced portrait of this graceful yet strong woman who felt it was her mission to restore a sense of grandeur, mystique, and excitement to the presidency, showcasing the various roles that Mrs. Reagan played during her years in the White House, that of wife, mother, protector, host, diplomat, and advisor, among others.  To complete the portrait, Lady in Red includes interviews with the friends and politicians who knew Mrs. Reagan best: President George H. W. Bush, Chris Wallace, James Baker, Ed Meese, Maureen Dowd, and Marlin Fitzwater share their most cherished memories of the first lady.

A Wonderful Interpretation from a Cllose Personal Friend

Story is written by someone who, at the beginning, does not know Nancy Reagan well. During her tenure as both an employee and a friend, she develops a good understanding of the First Lady Nancy becomes. She is strong, fiercely protective, and has a great sense of family. I get the impression that she has a great Sense of humor also.o
