Bank Square Books presents an author talk and signing with Tracey Enerson Wood for the book The President’s Wife.
About the Book:
From the USA Today bestselling author of The Engineer’s Wife and The War Nurse comes a sweeping historical novel based on the true story of courageous widow Edith Wilson that details her enchanting courtship with President Woodrow Wilson, her steadfast wisdom through World War I, and her unflinching tenacity when she served as secret leader of the United States after her husband suffered from a stroke and was unable to carry out his duties.
Tracey Enerson Wood was drawn to the story of Edith Wilson because, she believes, “we are at the cusp of finally having a female president. And when we do, I thoroughly hope she is chosen as the person most fit for the job, not just for her gender, for if she flounders due to inexperience or incompetence, it will set back the cause for women attaining positions of power. Of all the women in power in our history, I believe the unelected Edith Wilson has come closest to the position of president, so she should be studied for both the positive and negative things she did and the lessons learned from that.”
The President’s Wife shines a light on the brilliant and fascinating woman who made it her mission to protect her sick husband—and her country—at all costs. It is a vivid reimagining of the Wilsons’ timeless love story and the birth of their political partnership, as well as a timely and compelling look at the life of a woman who was thrust into something extraordinary—and proved she could more than handle the challenge.
