We read this book for our senior book club at an assisted living center. The participants liked the back story on the history they lived. It was well written with good tidbits. Our seniors liked that it wasn't inundated with dates. This book has spurned discussion about the up coming election as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
