Looking for your next read? Check out Stronger: Courage, Hope and Humor In My Life With John McCain by Cindy McCain, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Adrienne D.

On August 25, 2018, America lost a hero when Senator John McCain passed away. His widow, Cindy McCain, has written a beautiful memoir entitled Stronger: Courage, Hope and Humor In My Life With John McCain. Here, she chronicles her near 40-year marriage to Senator McCain and that she too is a star.

Mrs. McCain begins Stronger by discussing Senator McCain's illness and passing. These events set the memoir's tone that Mrs. McCain was honest and loved Senator McCain very much.

The memoir has three parts where readers meet Mrs. McCain as strong, courageous, and caring. In each section, there are several chapters where Mrs. McCain describes herself using these attributes. In the early years, Mrs. McCain did not feel welcomed by the Washington establishment. Still, she stood firm and looked the other way. She has embraced life as a widow and became a leader in important causes, especially drug trafficking. Readers not only get to know Mrs. McCain, but we learn more about the McCain children: Meghan, Bridget, Jack, and Jimmy and also Senator McCain's mother, Roberta. Within the text, there are beautiful McCain family photos that greatly enhance their story.

Stronger: Courage, Hope and Humor in My Life with John McCain is a must-read, and Mrs. McCain's beauty as a wife, mother, and person shines through. It is available in hardback and also on eBook and eAudiobook through Overdrive/Libby.
