Abstract:

"To begin with I was in love and I am in love so that's not hard." Ellie LeBlond Sosa had asked her grandmother how her lifelong love affair with President George H.W.

Through a lifetime's worth of stories and letters, and intimate interviews with the Bushes and family friends, this is a never-before-seen look into the private life of a very public couple.
