American Wife

An intelligent novel about a controversial political dynasty

A kind, bookish only child born in the 1940s, Alice Lindgren has no idea that she will one day end up in the White House, married to the president.

In her small Wisconsin hometown she learns the virtues of politeness, but a tragic accident when she is seventeen shatters her identity and changes the trajectory of her life.


"A well - researched book that imagines what lies behind that placid facade of the first lady".
