THE MATRIARCH Barbara Bush and the Making of an American Dynasty

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Levy

Biography & Memoir • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Kate Levy scores a triumph with her first audiobook narration, masterfully delivering this exhaustively researched biography of First Lady Barbara Bush. Even listeners with only the most casual interest in Mrs. Bush will find themselves transfixed by complex and fascinating insights that are short on sentiment and long on family dynamics. Levy's narration is appealing, straightforward, and highly adaptable to the narrative. As USA TODAY's Washington bureau chief, she enjoyed interviews with Bush family members, associates, and friends both before and immediately after the deaths of both Barbara and George H.W. Bush. While Mrs. Bush was dismissive of admiration for her so-called dynasty, she did love her family and returned the appreciation of vast numbers of the American people. W.A.G.
