  • About the Edition

    In this what-if novel, during the 1952 Democratic convention, Adlai Stevenson suffers a heart attack and dies on stage moments before he accepts the nomination. The popular Eleanor Roosevelt, a widow since 1945, is quickly brought in to take his place and run against Eisenhower. Her campaign rallies the support of women, unions and African-Americans, but even her own party doubts that Americans will elect a woman president, and as the campaign progresses, the Ku Klux Klan threatens to assassinate her and powerful enemies try to destroy her good name.
