Growing up, Jill Biden wanted two things: a strong, loving marriage like her parents, and a career. An early heartbreak left her uncertain about love, until she met then U.S. Senator Joe Biden. As they grew closer, Jill faced difficult questions: How would politics shape her family and professional life? And was she ready to become a mother to Joe’s two young sons?
She soon found herself falling in love with her three “boys,” learning to balance life as a mother, wife, educator, and political spouse. Through the challenges of public scrutiny, complicated family dynamics, and personal losses, Jill built a family—and a life—of her own.
Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself offers a candid look into a beloved American family, from the pranks Jill played to keep everyone laughing to the traditions she formed that would carry them through tragedy.
Jill Biden is a community college professor and served as Second Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017, where she advocated for military families, community colleges, the fight against cancer, and the education of women and girls around the world. She continues this work today through the Biden Foundation, the Biden Cancer Initiative, and the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children. In conversation with Tracy Pollan, an Emmy-nominated actress, producer, and author.
