Visiting an aunt and uncle in the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young southern belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a local charismatic farmer. That ride would propel her into history. First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to Jose "Don Pepe" Figueres led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile and political upheaval. First Lady of the Revolution is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to bring democracy to Costa Rica, but also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world, and live a life she never imagined.
