This was an excellent story. Karyn langhorne does it again! This author really pulls you into the story. Great story line. First Political book that I've read and really liked it. Gives great input from both parties point of view, deals with differences in parties, race, stands on war/peace, North vs South, love and life experiences. Characters were greatly defined and more than interesting. Black activist/school teacher Erica Johnson from the North vs White ambitious politician Mark Newman from the South are worthy adversaries go head to head not only politically but ends up intertwined romantically. This was definitely an interesting one and a surprising dramatic twist. Kept my interest. Another all nighter!
