I knew the basics of Jill Biden's background before opening this book, but reading her autobiography made my admiration for her grow. This is a short, manageable read; I read the book in one afternoon. The book touches on how Jill met Joe Biden and his young boys, who at the time were rebuilding their lives after losing Joe's first wife and baby daughter to a car crash. Jill details her road to becoming a senators wife, taking on two boys as her own, having their daughter Ashley, and maintaining an active career as a professor during the time she served as Second Lady. The heartache of the relatively recent loss of the Bidens' son, Beau, is present through most of the book. The book does not touch on some of the more recent bumps in the road the Biden family has faced, including Beau's widow dating the Bidens' other son, Hunter. The book is obviously timed to coincide with Joe Biden's most recent campaign, but I would have read it at any point as Jill has been consistently private over the years.
