Summary

Summary

“This is my America, from my heart, and by my heart. I give it now to my children and grandchildren, and to yours, so they will always know what it was like in America when people were free.”

Since the publication of her bestselling memoir, Going Rogue, in 2009, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has traveled the country extensively. She has visited cities and towns in almost every state, dropped in on military bases, given talks and speeches to small groups and at massive rallies. Throughout her travels, she has been privileged to meet thousands of Americans—ordinary men and women who have shared with her their hopes and dreams, their love of country, and their fears about what lies ahead. Governor Palin, inspired by these encounters, celebrates in her new book the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country a beacon of liberty and hope for the rest of the world.

America by Heart is a highly personal testament to her deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. Ranging widely over American history, culture, and current affairs, Governor Palin reflects on the key values that have been such an essential part of her own life and that continue to inform her vision of America’s future. The book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her, as well as portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.

Informed by Palin’s own principles and deepest feelings, graced with intimate memories, this remarkable book gives us a close-up view of an extraordinary woman who is not afraid to speak out and defend the American values in which she so deeply believes.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brims with historically significant details…Sudden celebrity imposes a heavier burden on conservative women than on most. In America by Heart, we learn about this woman’s inner strength to persevere, whatever lies ahead.” Washington Times
“This isn’t your traditional campaign book by any stretch. This is more Book of Virtues meets biography, with long blockquotes and candid reflections. It stands on its own as a nice little contribution to our culture.” National Review Online
“Warm and welcoming…It is Sarah Palin’s character—the woman behind the political titles, TV spots, and public speeches—that one comes to know through America by Heart…Will resonate with many Americans in much the same way as the author who gave it life: with a strong, real, likable voice that speaks from the heart.” Human Events
“The always-outspoken former vice presidential candidate intersperses personal reflections with her favorite classic and contemporary readings on family, religion, and patriotism. Rousing selections for like-minded mavericks.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Sarah Palin’s second book is a highly personal testament to her deep love of America, her strong roots in faith, and her appreciation of family as well as the embarrassment of having a teenage daughter who ended up pregnant. In her warm, welcoming voice and folksy style, Palin discusses American history, culture, and current affairs and reflects on the key values of her life that continue to inform her vision of America’s future. More overtly political than her autobiography, the book also includes brief readings from classic and contemporary texts that have moved and inspired her and portraits of Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires. Palin fans will enjoy this audio experience.” AudioFile
“Show[s] a thoughtful [Palin], albeit one strident in her beliefs…Every anecdote or reflection connects somehow to the themes of love of family and/or country…Proponents will see her as the strong, savvy Mama Grizzly.” Booklist
