    2013-09 – Harriet Lane, America's First Lady. Milton Stern (Author). 2005. 223 PagesGreat lady still important and relevant today because of her philanthropy. One of the few books available about her but felt rushed. Interestingly her will and her uncle’s (POTUS Buchanan) wills were quite fascinating to read and revealed a lot about them as people.

    I read this book for a newspaper article I was doing on the woman who served as first lady to America's only bachelor president (and the only Pennsylvanian to serve as president), James Buchanan. I thought her life was interesting, particularly in the way she exerted power during a time when it was difficult for women to do so. But as a piece of historical research and writing, this book left a lot to be desired. It's tone is more People magazine than well-crafted biography.

    I was intrigued by Lane's role as first lady but Stern did not do her justice. This biography comes across as a collection of facts rather than a cohesive piece. I know the research may be limited but Stern skipped over huge parts of Lane's life and barely gets into any specifics. I was hoping for way more.
