Audible Editor Reviews

ABC News political commentator and Emmy Award-winning journalist Cokie Roberts displays a real passion for history and the hidden voices belonging to women whose lives were intertwined with famous and infamous men in political history. In her earthy voice, Roberts talks humorously about how her mother inspired her book Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation. Roberts talks about seeing historical figures from the perspective of the women around them and the importance of seeing these men as flesh and blood instead of the mythical characters they've become. Listeners will enjoy how Roberts makes history feel alive and accessible with her charming anecdotes.
