Dr. Jill Biden on Her Campaign Trail Project & What She Wants People to Know About Her Husband

At the moment, she says she's halfway through Isabel Allende’s latest novel, A Long Petal of the Sea. What's more, she says she feels she has a connection with Allende, as they have both lost children.

“I met her years and years and years ago, and she told me this story: Her daughter, Paula, was in the hospital for a year, and she sat by her bedside,” says Dr. Biden. “She went to the hospital every single day, and then her daughter died.”

The story struck a chord with her, as the vice president's son Beau Biden, whom she helped raise, died from brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.

“We went to the hospital every single day and sat by his bedside,” she says. “So I feel this connection to her, and I'm sure that when I see her again, it'll be something that we'll talk about.”
