Beth Wilford Avery is the most famous woman in the world. At twenty-one, she saves the future President of the United States from an assassin's bullet and becomes the perfect candidate for the position of First Lady.

Born into a prominent political family, Beth knows how to appear poised in public, how to smile for the cameras and, most importantly, how to keep secrets. Until she meets someone to whom she needs to reveal the truth about her life...

Sharp, witty and insightful, The President's Wife is not only a suspenseful story of a public marriage and private anguish, and a telling account of political spin and manipulation, it also explores the way certain charismatic women become icons who exercise an enduring fascination in the lives of millions.

    Comments about The President's Wife:

    Although this was a difficult book to get into (took me approx 2 -3 chapters in before the story started taking place), I found the story behind this quite facinating even if I had to re-read several parts again to gain the full picture.

    Comments about The President's Wife:

    I found this novel very hard to "get into". The first several chapters were not 'page turners' but once the characters are established, I found this novel to be a pleasant read.
