Told from three points of view this is a well researched book of the relationships between Eisenhower and his wife and Eisenhower and his driver/lover. It is right on the edge of non-fiction with all the facts, people and historical events that are so elegantly told in this book. I have to admit that I am a bit of a history buff and this book totally fit that need without some of the dryness you read in a lot of non-fiction or the unbelievability seen in some historical fiction.
Definite 4 out of 5 stars. I was slightly disappointed with the ending chapters because of their brevity – the rest the book is so rich that I felt the ending was a little lacking the same “feel”. As a whole this is a wonderful book!

One thought on “The General’s Women by Susan Wittig Albert”
I usually read ancient historical fiction, but this review makes me want to look at some of the newer stuff.
Thank you Jennie! I love your reviews.
