A stunning photo collection showcasing Melania Trump’s time as First Lady of the United States.
Melania Trump’s journey from a communist upbringing to becoming First Lady gives her a perspective on true freedom that most people from western Europe and the United States take for granted. This book details in photographs and commentary the spectacular journey of a woman who brings elegance back to the White House. Fashion-forward and sophisticated, but also incredibly approachable and humble—her personal staff is less than half the size of the previous two First Ladies—Mrs. Trump is a political and cultural icon whose impact on history will surely be momentous.
L. D. Hicks is a Texan with a degree in Christian Ministry and Biblical Studies from LeTourneau University in East Texas and a master’s degree in American History earned at Norwich University in Vermont. He is also the author of Melania Trump: Elegance in the White House and the children’s book, Clarence Thomas: The Things He Learned. Mr. Hicks has a love of southwestern and Texas history, plastic dinosaurs, hiking, electronic music, Pear Red Bulls (they will change your life) and reading anything from the back of soup cans to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, David J. Weber, T. R. Fehrenbach, and Jean Edward Smith. Mr. Hicks has been with his amazing wife, Lisa, for twenty-seven years and lives in East Texas with Smokey Jack his cat and Lulu his dog.
"The book highlights the journey of someone who brings her own 'distinctive elegance' to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and to her work on behalf of Americans. At a time when so many people appear to go out of their way to disrespect America’s first lady for their own political purposes — or simply because they can, on social media and elsewhere — it’s refreshing to see a new book that captures so much of Melania Trump’s grace, beauty and poise — and all of her charitable and humanitarian work as well."
