About the Author
Eslynne Smith grew up a Navy brat and experienced life as both an enlisted and commissioned spouse. A Democrat married to a Republican, Smith's blended family includes two children from his first marriage, one from hers, and two they had together.
Smith suffers from PTSD and is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, experiences she used to create the backstory for Taming the Tida. Now retired, her work history includes bill collecting, mortgage underwriting, and negotiating repurchase agreements for failed mortgages.
Her ability to see trends has served Smith well in the past, helping her see the importance of the 2016 elections and the need for both parties to field authentic candidates.

But aside from the off-putting presentation issues this is a high-energy tale told by a very good storyteller.
Buyer beware, I had to put the book aside for a later time, but this is a fresh impression based on what I've seen so far; I look forward to picking it up again soon.
When former President Sharmin Smith, the nation's first female president (and mother of the current POTUS, her daughter) is struck by lightning and disappears, shortly after chatting with citizens at the White House gate, the U.S., and the world, are shocked, distraught, and grieving. Sharmin' s granddaughter in law, Amanda Thompson, a news reporter and very close to the former President, had recently completed an interview series with her, which revealed the trials and tribulations, pain and suffering, and joys of Sharmin Smith's long--and long-suffering--life.
The author generously provided a print copy for review purpose, without remuneration.
Would you vote for a new kind of POTUS? An abuse survivor? A high school graduate? A female? Someone with no legal or political background?
Do you watch the political news and think to yourself "Any idiot could have seen that coming", and actually came up with a solution to many of our nations troubles?
I don't know about most people, but I don't feel like my 'representation' in Washington has any idea how the majority of us live. Sharmin Smith lives a life most people can relate with her over. Whether it's relating to being an abuse survivor, diagnosed with PTSD, a military brat/wife, mother with a blended family...she has ideas that can turn this country around for the better.
You don't have to agree with all of her ideas, her beliefs, or her methods, but I think you will find yourself dreaming for the day when a new kind of President gets elected to truly lead the people.
