Libby McKnight elegantly narrates a fictionalized history of the courtship and marriage of widow Edith Bolling Galt and the 28th U.S. president, widower Woodrow Wilson. McKnight delivers the deeply personal exchanges between the couple with a perfect understanding of the exquisitely romantic Wilson and the uncertain Galt. This period piece culls from official documents and numerous personal letters, creating a portrait of two well-intentioned souls who faced partisan politics, impending war, racism, and women's suffrage. McKnight doesn't miss the irony of Edith's advising Woodrow on world affairs when women didn't yet have the right to vote. In this true love story, McKnight humanizes the Wilsons and their tenuous times with subtlety and eloquence. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
