At twenty-four, Lindy Boggs came to Washington, D.C., from Louisiana with her newly elected husband, Democratic Congressman Hale Boggs. FDR was starting his third term, Europe was at war, and Pearl Harbor was around the corner. She has been there ever since, playing an integral role in the key events of the last half century. Now, in Washington Through a Purple Veil, Congresswoman Lindy Boggs shares the triumphs as well as the trials of living a life of public service.In this intimate memoir - rich with anecdotes about "official" and "unofficial" Washington and illustrated with over thirty photographs from her personal collection - Lindy Boggs speaks about her congressional tenure, her family life, the faith that has sustained her through the disappearance of her husband and the death of her daughter, and all that is meaningful to her.
