Introduction

From teenage love to World War II to the White House--a love affair for the ages rooted in family and service.

"The First Couple of the Greatest Generation, the Bushes were bright and funny, strong and devoted, loving and enduring. Here is their story, wonderfully told by a granddaughter raised in the warm ethos of a fabled American family.” —Jon Meacham,
Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer.

“To begin with I was in love and I am in love so that’s not hard,” Barbara Bush told her granddaughter Ellie LeBlond Sosa on her porch in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Sosa had asked for the secret to her and President George H.W. Bush's 77-year love affair that withstood World War II separation, a leap of faith into the oil fields of West Texas, the painful loss of a child, a political climb to the highest office, and after the White House, the transition back to a “normal” life.



Through a lifetime’s worth of letters, photographs, and stories, Sosa and coauthor Kelly Anne Chase paint the portrait of the enduring relationship of George and Barbara Bush. Sharing intimate interviews with the Bushes and family friends, this is a never-before-seen look into the private life of a very public couple.
