Summary, etc.:
Presidents have come and gone, but Marjorie Merriweather Post has hosted them all. Growing up in the modest farmlands of Battle Creek, Michigan, Marjorie had an insatiable drive to live and love and to give more than she got. Her journey began gluing cereal boxes in her father's barn as a young girl. As the General Foods empire grew and reshaped the American way of life, Marjorie became its heiress and leading lady. But she dared to demand more, becoming the wealthiest woman in the United States. A wife four times over, Marjorie embraced her power-- while shaping history in the process. -- adapted from jacket
"I Am Mrs. Post is a work of fiction. All incidents and dialogue, and all characters with the exception of some well-known historical figures, are products of the author's imagination and are not to be construed as real. Where real-life historical persons appear, the situations, incidents, and dialogues concerning those persons are entirely fictional and are not intended to depict actual events or to change the entirely fictional nature of the work. In all other respects, any resemblance to persons living or dead is entirely coincidental."-- Provided by publisher.
