Mrs. Ike

By Susan Eisenhower
In an era where Americans are desperately seeking heroes and mentors, here is the story of how a saucy young lady from Denver, Mamie Doud Eisenhower, meets her match in handsome Ike Eisenhower, a farm boy fresh out of West Point, and becomes the Army wife par excellence. They were two very passionate and private people whose 53-year marriage, much of it lived in the public eye, survived great tragedies, misunderstandings, and adventures - and led to glowing triumphs in World War II and the White House. Mrs. Ike is not only a biography of a beloved American but a superb account of a complex marriage. Susan Eisenhower helps readers see her grandmother as her husband did - a heroic and irresistible figure in her own right.

"In Mrs. Ike, Susan Eisenhower has written a vivid memoir incorporating hundreds of unpublished letters between her grandparents during the war and accounts of life with Ike by family and friends. Mamie comes across as full of spice and self-confidence ... helps liberate Mamie Eisenhower's image from the shadow her husband cast and from the shadings of history." The New York Times Book Review, Mark Marvel
