I loved the stories of the First Ladies and how the author tied them to the scripture from Proverbs 31 about a wife of noble character. It's apparent the author did a lot of research. I also liked the encouragement she gives the reader to be the best she can be. This book is historical, faith-building and life-coaching rolled into one! Also a great gift book which my friend enjoyed.

Excellent book! The way Jane, the author, brought the woman of Proverbs 31 to life through the lives of the first ladies was unexpected and fascinating. I loved how Jane weaved each story into the next story. I was so impressed with this book I bought a copy for each of my three nieces. Not only will this book give them more insight into our country¿s history, but more importantly, it will also teach them what it means to be a woman of noble character.

This book is delightful and insightful. it not only flawlessly applies Proverbs 31 to the first ladies, but also to your life as an everyday woman trying to glorify God and be the best you can be. It gives you newfound respect for the honorable first ladies, enjoyable short stories, interesting facts, and meaningful applications. You realize the amazing accomplishments of our first ladies and of the woman in Proverbs 31, and, whatever your age, inspires you to persue their path of excellance.

The book is an excellent look at a topic often overlooked in history -- the spiritual strength of First Ladies who are in the shadow of the President yet have needs as each of us do daily. The author does a good job of filling out the facts she researched with fictional narrative to illustrate and place the First Ladies in the context of their time. It's a well written book based on Proverbs 31 that will be both informative and uplifting.

This book gives women a very positive outlook on themselves. It helps them see how ordinary events they deal with in their every day lives are basically what the First Ladies dealt with too. You'll learn a lot about the First Ladies. It combines history with spiritual insights. This book's Bible reference is Proverbs 31. A lovely book to keep or give as a gift to a friend or relative.
