My political leanings are on the other side of the Reagans but I am enjoying this book. The fact that Nancy was sent by her mother to live with someone else is like my mothers story. Her mother died giving birth to her and then her father gave all three of the girls away to different people and went on with his life. My mom was brought up by an aunt. Of course she was not famous like Nancy,but she carried on with her life to be a good citizen.
