Beth Wilford is one of the most famous women in the world. Her youth, charisma and freshness have endeared her to thousands. Photographers lay siege to her family home. She is followed everywhere. But who is she? Young, beautiful, with an impeccable political pedigree, she is the woman in love with Marshall Avery, the next President of the United States. And while Beth has the poise not to falter under the barrage of flashbulbs, it can't protect her from a would-be assassin's bullet...Sharp, witty, 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 is also an examination of the way certain women - like Diana, Jackie and Evita - become icons who exercise an enduring fascination in the lives of millions.
