This is possibly one os the quickest, easiest poltiical romances you will ever read. I am not really big on politics, but I always enjoy the presidential election seasons. And it is nice that I have actually lived through every one of them that the author has chosen to cover. And it is quite unique to see it through the lens of one Lucy Jones, a liberal who seems to struggle with getting what she wants from life.
I am glad that there were no bedroom scenes. The profanity was there but not as bad as some books. The liberal mindset did not bother me too much (even though I am a conservative). I was pleased that the protagonist never discussed the more controversial topics of liberalism–gay rights and abortion. I fully expected that to be there, and I even thought she might make a decsion that would be in keeping with that. Actually, all she did was point out things about each president and candidate that I truly already knew. Or had heard. And I basically agreed with her view on the presidential candidates and campaigns.
The story itself was nothing shocking or overly intriguing. It was just an easy-to-read story that spanned a few decades. I enjoyed some of the author’s references to things I remember from certain eras. This is an interesting book to read–especially during a campaign year. Nice review of recent American history!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
