How I wish my father could have seen the day when the daughter he raised by himself was asked to become a steward of that government! That was what Drusilla Rearchek proclaimed on the day the President of the United States introduced her as his official nominee to become the Secretary of Treasury. However, if Drusilla had been privy to all the backroom double-dealing and political intrigue that lay before her, she might well have said otherwise before accepting the President's appointment. As the founder Sharanski Enterprises, Drusilla Rearchek has outdone herself. Thirty years earlier she set her sights on conquering the City of the Big Shoulders when she established her company. She is now the richest woman in America! The legendary fortune Drusilla created all on her own has made her name the household definition for the word success in America. So much so that, when the President of the United States extends an invitation for her to join his cabinet, Drusilla eagerly accepts. Only the President hasn't counted on Drusilla being a woman of passionate convictions.and her loyalty to those convictions instantly runs counter to the prevailing governing sentiments of the Washington beltway establishment. Once she is cast into this bureaucratic world, Drusilla is immediately overwhelmed by the overall level of incompetence, corruption, and dishonesty. The trials Drusilla must endure during her tenure as Secretary of the Treasury will put those convictions to the test. In the process, Drusilla will ultimately learn just how much one must sacrifice in order to be a successful government servant. But will she be able to make that sacrifice?
