George and Laura : They would be called upon to lead a nation in one of its darkest hours - but were they up to the task? He had been the wild, hard-drinking scion of one of America's premier political families. She was the school librarian with a warm smile and a tragic secret of her own. Yet after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, they rose to the challenge: He became the embodiment of America's fighting spirit and she assumed the role of "First Comforter" with effortless grace. Still, the true nature of their relationship has remained a mystery. Until now. In the style of his #1 New York Times bestsellers The Day Diana Died and The Day John Died, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources - many speaking here for the first time - to paint a vivid, sometimes startling, often inspiring portrait of America's First Couple.
