Here is Marcia Clark in 2016, 21 years later. She looks good! I had to study the picture before I was convinced that it was her. The trial ended on October 3, 1995 and the book was published in 1997. This book was hard for her to write, to go over the events, still recovering from her illnesses, trying to get her life back to some normalcy. She was mad, mad that the jury took race over evidence. For a trial that lasted from January 1995 to October 1995 it only took the jury 4 hours to come to a verdict.
I received this book as a gift last year (2017) and it had just come out. I didn’t read it until recently and it worked out because I then watched the HW funeral and also Barbara Pierce Bush had gotten married in October and saw the pictures of that. I follow George H. and Laura on Instagram.
This book was thoroughly enjoyable. The stories of the girls growing up and when they lived in the Governors mansion then the White House. Their college years and when 911 happened. They loved Kennebunkport and all their Grandparents and spending time with them and their cousins.
The two girls have gone to different universities, found their own careers which are very different but their comfort zones are being back together. The connection from the womb. They look very different and hold themselves very different too, but they think very similarly. Service is a very large part of their lives. This was a great read!
