Drawing on recently released letters and diaries of Woodrow Wilson and Edith Galt, Shachtman presents an intimate account of their passionate romance and marriage against a backdrop of world events during Wilson's presidency
A good bio in the love between Edith and Woodrow. Many believe that Edith ran the White House and the presidency for the last few years of Wilson's second administration. Edith has been called the first female president and the first Native American president (descended from Pocahontas). This is a good, but not great book that was more skewed towards the issues at hand (Mexico, WWI, League of Nations) than abot how lovey dovey they got, but them that was the relationship they had. Edith was a very smart business woman (Galt's Jewelers in Washington, DC) and brought her skills, insights and abilities to assist Wilson. He leaned on her for advice on many Bills, issues and treaties.

The fact that they loved each other dearly is shown in this book. While he died in the early 20's, she lived into the early 60's and participated in JFK's Inauguration Parade, working hard to keep Woodrow's name and reputation in the public eye.
This book is an account of Woodrow Wilson, concentating on his second wife, Edith Bolling Galt Wilson. I found it enjoyable to read and rather moving. Wilson was an interesting and odd person, and this book accurately shows that after his stroke in 1919 he was no longer the brilliant person he was before that calamity. Edith lived on till Dec. 28, 1961, which date was the 105th anniversary of Woodrow Wilson's birth. I found this book a satisfying and attention-holding book, tho it is does not pretend to be scholarly.
