Theodore Roosevelt may have confronted many obstacles as Rough Rider, governor, and president, but he faced an even greater challenge in his daughter Alice, who “ate up the world.” When sent to Miss Spence’s Boarding School to be a proper young lady, Alice finagled a real education in her father’s library and at his table. As her father’s goodwill ambassador, she was embraced by the press and the world. Alice’s spirit—feisty, all-a-bustle, and effervescent—permeates Katherine Kellgren’s narration. At moments of excitement, Kellgren speeds breathlessly along; at moments of exasperation, Kellgren draws out her phrases and emphasizes single words. Kellgren effectively voices the exasperated father, as well. Background music and an interview with the author complete the recording. A.R. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
