"What makes Rosalynn Carter so interesting and her memoir so compelling is her awareness that she is part of a long and distinguished historical tradition: the southern lady in politics . . . What ought to be a continuing legacy is Rosalynn's success in breaking new ground as a First Lady, without uprooting the traditions of the past" (Minneapolis Tribune).
