Books were inscribed and signed and the party lasted from 6:00 PM until midnight.
The First First Gentleman is an epic love story about the obstacles overcome by Melinda Sherman, a physically and emotionally wounded war hero who falls in love with a worldly political operative who manages her campaign for President of the United States.
Their love is their greatest political asset. She speaks out in a stunning way that punctures the cultural orthodoxy and feeds the public’s hunger for a different political leader, while dark forces seek to undo her. This novel is a healing love story, a political thriller, a starkly honest social commentary, and an homage to Charles Dickens.
