VOYA - Jane Van Wiemokly
Chelsea House's valuable collection of biographies in their Women of Achievement series includes a spectrum of careers, disciplines, and time periods. Written in a journalistic narrative, the books cover important biographical data, historical events, and personal quotations interwoven to profile the subject and her significance in history. Princess Diana married into the British royal family on July 29, 1981, and became an overnight sensation, providing endless fascination to an international public and press throughout her lifetime. As the world watched, Diana developed her role as a princess, in charitable work, as a fashion icon, and as an exemplary mother to Princes William and Harry. Also discussed are Diana's struggles with an eating disorder, the dissolution of the royal marriage, and finally, the tragedy of her untimely death.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is described in her biography as "a first lady like no other." She has charted a broadened role of the position that will permanently change the future First Families of the United States. Details about Hillary Rodham's childhood and schooling, her skills and expertise as an attorney, and her role as Chelsea's mother, are all influential in her charismatic role as the partner of President William Clinton. The scope of this volume covers material up to May

Gr 6 Up-Emphasizing the many ways in which Hillary Rodham Clinton has redefined the role of First Lady, this title updates previous works by including events through July 1997. With an engaging narrative style marked by frequent quotations and occasional humor, the author paints a portrait of this talented, ambitious woman who maintained a high-profile career while raising a child. The author implies that her highly visible, unprecedented leadership role in developing and carrying out government policy and her involvement in White House controversy are even more notable. Kozar's objectivity is evident as he suggests that "the jury is still out" as to how future generations will judge her. Discreet mention is made of Gennifer Flowers's accusations about Bill Clinton and the ensuing 60 Minutes interview. Good-quality, black-and-white photographs primarily of Clinton's political life appear throughout the book; however, the full-color cover portrait is not an easily recognizable likeness. There are no footnotes or chapter notes. The index omits the first reference to Kenneth Starr that identifies him by full name and title. A well-rounded biography.-Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
