"The Mysterious Mrs. Nixon is a marvelous biography--a deeply reported, illuminating story of love, ambition, and influence. With vivid detail based on new sources, Heath Hardage Lee brings to life a complex and memorable figure in a book that never fails to fascinate." -- Jonathan Eig, author of King: A Life and Ali: A Life

"I first met Pat Nixon in October 1952 when I was six years old. Over the following two-plus decades, she became one of the most admired women in the country. Yet, somehow, Americans never seemed to come to really know her. In The Mysterious Mrs. Nixon, Heath Lee reveals Pat Nixon to be a strong, complex, intensely human woman whose life deserves to be appreciated in full. Mrs. Nixon is a mystery no more." -- Christine Todd Whitman, 50th Governor of New Jersey and best-selling author of It's My Party Too
