willing to sacrifice to get it.

running for Senate in the most important race in the country
during a midterm election that will decide the balance of
power in Congress. Still reeling from a presidential

high-powered job in Silicon Valley and returned, with her
husband Max and their three young daughters, to her
downtrodden Pennsylvania hometown to run in the Rust Belt
Once the campaign gets underway, Charlotte
is blindsided by just how dirty her opponent is willing to
fight, how harshly she is judged by the press and her peers,
and how exhausting it becomes to navigate a marriage with an
increasingly ambivalent and often resentful husband. When
the opposition uncovers a secret that could threaten not

has to decide just how badly she wants to win and at what

office in America today. In a dramatic political moment like
no other with more women running for office than ever
before, Jo Piazza’s novel is timely, engrossing, and perfect
for readers on both sides of the aisle.
