"Storytelling is deeply embedded in my DNA," says Peggy Stanton, who served ABC-TV as its first female news correspondent in Washington, DC, in the 1960s. Opening up the journals Stanton kept for decades, especially while traveling the world with her husband, Congressman Bill Stanton, From the White House to the White Cross offers an entertaining and revealing glimpse into a storied world of glitz and glamor, featuring A-listers from Julie Andrews and Charlton Heston to Lyndon Johnson, Fidel Castro, and Salvador Dali. Stanton's perspective - and life - change unexpectedly during a visit to Medjugorje, where, in her words, "the Master attempts to chisel a poor piece of clay into what he intended her to be." Her dramatic conversion from "a cultural Catholic to a committed Catholic" opens a new chapter in a life filled with adventure, opportunity, and service.
