The General’s Women by Susan Wittig Albert

General's WOmen

Historical Fiction

           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!
