Senator Boxer, writing with Mary-Rose Hayes, tells an exciting tale of friendship and betrayal, idealism and pragmatism, in-fighting and public spin. The novel follows follows Ellen from her days as an college student, through romantic entanglements and a difficult marriage to a rising political star.
