"Up to date through late 2021, this is a satisfying, enlightening profile of a talented woman redefining the role of First Lady."
“Pace and Superville draw on memoirs by Jill, Joe, and Hunter Biden; published interviews, articles, and biographical material; and an interview with Jill herself to create an admiring biography of the first lady… The authors portray Jill as a devoted, practical, energetic mother and wife, able to juggle family life, public responsibilities, and teaching, to which she is wholly committed. In short, brisk chapters, the authors recount Jill’s busy, productive life: engaging in Joe’s presidential runs, supporting military families, and responding to family challenges, including the death of Beau Biden from brain cancer and Hunter’s problems with addiction. A fond portrait of a woman anyone would want as a friend.”
"In Jill: A Biography of the First Lady, authors Darlene Superville and Julie Pace chart the story of Jill meeting Joe (and making him propose five times!), becoming a mother to Beau, Hunter, and Ashley, going through three presidential elections, and breaking barriers with her decision to work outside the White House."
"With Jill: A Biography of the First Lady, AP reporters Darlene Superville and Julie Pace shine a light on the lifelong educator and Biden family protector."
“Associated Press journalists Pace and Superville offer a deep dive into the personal and political life of first lady Jill Biden in this deeply reported biography of the woman who holds the Biden family together.”
“[Dr. Jill Biden’s] devotion and vigilance – often enacted publicly but deeply ingrained in her private self – are explored in depth…the book is extensively reported and features interviews with some of the first lady’s dearest relatives and friends.”
“Jill: A Biography of the First Lady examines how Biden’s commitment to her work has defined the first family as much as her husband’s own political career and ambitions.”
