Grace Coolidge: Sudden Star
Grace Coolidge was considered the perfect balance to her husband, Calvin Coolidge, renowned for his shy, cautious and restrained nature (nicknamed Silent Cal). The first lady was to emerge as a fashion trendsetter, cordial social mixer and the one who remembered names and faces - a great political asset. This book is to provide readers with an overview of Grace's life and her time in Washington. Her own values, as seen through her personal letters, form the new material for this book, which will be beneficial to those interested in first ladies and women in American history.
