The highly skilled Kirsten Potter gracefully narrates this intimate portrait of Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon Johnson. With a pronounced focus on her White House years, the text is principally drawn from her recently unredacted diary tapes and transcripts. The audiobook is also a portrait of the 1960s, replete with social turbulence, issues of racial equality, an unpopular war, and groundbreaking artistic creativity. Potter's approachable performance applies a light Southern accent to the direct quotes. While using accents can often be a risky maneuver, Potter does it with such understatement that it works well. Consider stepping back in time to take a look at Lady Bird's influence on LBJ's presidency. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
