Everything Beautiful in Its Time: Seasons of Love and Loss

Jenna Bush Hager. Morrow, $26.99 (240p) ISBN 978-0-06-296062-7
In this charming memoir, Bush Hager (Sisters First), cohost of Today with Hoda & Jenna, pays tribute to her prominent family, particularly her grandparents. Bush Hager describes growing up in two presidential families: when she and her twin sister were toddlers, they “got in trouble” when Secret Service agents rescued them from a 10-foot seawall after they’d escaped from their cribs while visiting the Maine home of their grandfather, “Gampy”—President George H.W. Bush. Bush Hager’s memoir is rife with charming anecdotes: dancing in her prom dress with her father (President George W. Bush) after her date jilted her, discussing books and cats with her “southern lady” mother Laura, and squabbling with her beloved sister Barbara (the author might punch, but her twin had “strong nails and wasn’t afraid to use them”). Bush Hager recounts the period in which she lost both Bush grandparents, as well as her namesake Jenna Welch (“She wasn’t loud and she didn’t boast, but she was proud of her life and her family”). She also paints a vivid picture of strong and devoted matriarch Barbara Bush (“More than once, I have looked at my grandmother and thought, This woman is invincible”). This endearing memoir brings readers deep into the heart of a family that many may feel they already know well. Bush’s fans will delight in these intimate, funny remembrances. (Sept.)
