NEW YORK, April 18 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton's soon-to-be-published memoir of her time as U.S. secretary of state now has a title, Hard Choices, her publisher announced Friday.

Simon & Schuster added the title to its hillaryclintonmemoir.com website. The book is scheduled to hit the stores June 10, and the site encourages readers to advance order it through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other outlets.

The publisher describes the memoir as "the story of the four extraordinary and historic years" Clinton spent in the cabinet of President Obama, who defeated her for the Democratic nomination in 2008.

“All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Simon & Schuster quotes, saying that is how Clinton starts her memoir. "Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become."

Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday afternoon at an appearance with her mother in New York that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, are expecting a child in the fall. The news sparked speculation about how becoming a grandmother would affect Hillary Clinton's chances in the presidential race, criticism of the media for covering a woman politician's personal life more closely than those of men, and suggestions from some conservatives that Clinton put pressure on her daughter to provide her with a grandchild for the campaign trail.

Clinton is the author of It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us, published while her husband was president, and a 2003 memoir, Living History. As first lady, she also published a collection of children's letters to her family's pets.
