Melanie Kingston, White House chief of staff to the nation’s forty-fifth president, Charlotte Kramer, has spent 15 years in the 18 acres that constitute the White House complex. As her boss and dear friend President Kramer considers running for a second term, the two are confronted with political and personal turmoil that threatens their collective and individual careers. Melanie has no social life to speak of as she navigates the politics within and outside the White House. Charlotte’s marriage is falling apart, her husband is having an affair, and her closest adviser and friend makes a judgment that threatens national security and tests the bonds of friendship. Dale Smith, a reporter in love with the president’s husband, fights her conscience and professional ethics as she struggles to climb to the top of television news reporting. Wallace draws on 13 years experience as a political commentator and news reporter, many of those years spent working in the White House, to deliver a portrait of three women caught in the whirlwind of Washington politics. --Vanessa Bush

My wife and I became enamored with Ms. Wallace during the 2016 campaign and election coverage and we are rapt viewers of her TV show - we record it daily and watch it every night. Not only is she smart, intelligent, educated, and experienced but she has human values in bringing perspective to today's political life - she also has this way of delivering well focused on-point "Nicolle isms" with these priceless expressions into the camera.
Enough said - BUY!
It tells the story of the first female president and the hardships she faces in her office and the trials her assistants face with life and real lives in Washing, D. C. She Charlotte Kramer travels to Afghanstan and one of her reporter's gets very badly hurt in a helicopter accident and her chances for re-election stand in the balance.
Overall it was a great book and I look forward to the next one.
