LADY BIRD AND LYNDON The Hidden Story of a Marriage That Made a President

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Amanda Carlin

Biography & Memoir • 16.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Listeners interested in the lives of Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson will love this audiobook. Narrator Amanda Carlin provides good interpretations of both Lady Bird's and Lyndon's voices and Texas accents. Lady Bird's southern upbringing cultivated a public persona that was quite different behind closed doors. She was bright, attractive--and formidable. When anyone had a problem with LBJ, they went to her, and she would "persuade" her husband to reconsider his decision. Her expertise in handling those situations was tantamount to salvaging his presidency. As complex as their personalities were, they stayed together until the day LBJ died. Carlin does a fine job of capturing the essence of their relationship and its effect on the Johnson years in the White House. E.E.S.
