MY THOUGHTS

I really enjoyed this book and it was such a quick, easy read that I finished it in one day.

You can see in Reagan’s letters to Nancy that he was so in love with her. He constantly mentions how he can’t live without her and that he was a lonely man before he met her. Then you get to see how much she loved him as she thought back to their life together when he wrote the letters.

One of my favorite parts of Reagan’s letters are how many different nicknames he had for Nancy. it was so funny reading nicknames like Nancy Poo, Nancy Poo Pants, and Glamour Puss. Thankfully, Nancy explains where some of the nicknames come from, but not all, making me wonder how the others came about. Every time a new nickname came up, I thought about my husband and me. We also have so many silly nicknames I’ve lost count.

It’s very nice to see another side of Ronald Reagan from the person who knows him best and was with him through all the ups and downs of his life as well as his career. Nancy made it a point that her life was all about Ronald Reagan and making sure he had a conformable home. He always made a point to show her how grateful he was for it and never stopped writing her letters.

Overall, its a very wonderful cute love story of the President and First Lady. Even though people knew how much they loved each other just from seeing them together, it was great to read about them from Nancy’s point of view. After reading this book, I feel even more certain that they are the most in love historical couple.
