EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources, bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating, untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s eldest daughter, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph—a woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and shaped an American legacy. From her earliest days, Patsy Jefferson knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter, she becomes his helpmate, protector, and constant companion in the wake of her mother’s death, traveling with him when he becomes American minister to France. It is in Paris, at the glittering court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that fifteen-year-old Patsy learns about her father’s troubling liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age. Meanwhile, Patsy has fallen in love—with her father’s protégé William Short, a staunch abolitionist and ambitious diplomat. Torn between love, principles, and the bonds of family, Patsy questions whether she can choose a life as William’s wife and still be a devoted daughter. Her choice will follow her in the years to come, to Virginia farmland, Monticello, and even the White House. And as scandal, tragedy, and poverty threaten her family, Patsy must decide how much she will sacrifice to protect her father's reputation, in the process defining not just his political legacy, but that of the nation he founded.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Barack Hussein Obama.........Few Are Chosen....The Obamanating Spirit and Remembered Stories" is an inspired book written about Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America. The book consists of several topics that I hope the reader will find enlightening. It is a look backwards, in that I tell the audience about the segregated South and a look forward, the place where we must strive to be. Nevertheless, I hope that each individual will enjoy reading my book, which incorporates biography, humor, historical facts, scripture, and religious beliefs. It is not an attack on anyone or any group. It is intended to be an eye-opener in that it deals with several topics that relate to the President including birth, patriotism and religion. Each chapter discusses what I believe is an American peoples concern. Some people might see my book as a book on race relations and to some degree it is, but gently. There are thirteen chapters. In Chapter Five I discuss the forty year prophesy of the coming of Barack Obama; while in Chapter Seven I discuss the struggles of African Americans "then and now," the African American churches, including Rev. Wright, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King (among other things); Chapter Nine, "Forcing Scared Against The President" discusses how the politicians work overtime to portray President Obama illegitimately to the American Public, and Chapter Ten, disputes the assertion that Barack Obama is a radical (Really?); Chapter Eleven, "Will the Real Mr. Speaker Stand," questions the heart of John Boehner and Chapter Twelve, "Guess Who's Coming To The Tea Party" warns the Tea Party that they could very easily become the terror group of the past. Chapter One, "I Saw An Angel" is the foundation for the book and how it all got started.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

“Presidential darling, America’s sweetheart, national rebel: Teddy Roosevelt’s swashbuckling daughter Alice springs to life in this raucous anthem to a remarkable woman.”—Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network A sweeping novel from renowned author Stephanie Marie Thornton... Alice may be the president's daughter, but she's nobody's darling. As bold as her signature color Alice Blue, the gum-chewing, cigarette-smoking, poker-playing First Daughter discovers that the only way for a woman to stand out in Washington is to make waves--oceans of them. With the canny sophistication of the savviest politician on the Hill, Alice uses her celebrity to her advantage, testing the limits of her power and the seductive thrill of political entanglements. But Washington, DC is rife with heartaches and betrayals, and when Alice falls hard for a smooth-talking congressman it will take everything this rebel has to emerge triumphant and claim her place as an American icon. As Alice soldiers through the devastation of two world wars and brazens out a cutting feud with her famous Roosevelt cousins, it's no wonder everyone in the capital refers to her as the Other Washington Monument--and Alice intends to outlast them all.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Here are the personal philosophies, opinions, thoughts, witticisms, and feelings of such upstanding and quintessential Americans as Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Hillary Clinton. These women have been more than just wives of American Presidents. Their roles have included everything from negotiating with heads of state to redecorating the White House, from debating political issues to acting as advisors, confidantes, and diplomats. Through statements made during press interviews and in speeches and in writing, these women put into words what might otherwise have remained private: Abigail Adams proves herself to be a pioneer feminist; Eleanor Roosevelt defines life's ultimate success; Lady Bird Johnson recounts a soul-enriching boat ride; and much more. What they have to say about marriage, child-rearing, success, happiness, beauty in the world, education, careers for women, women in politics, relationships, growing old, love, and living life to the fullest is powerful and profound. The pronouncements, pet peeves, gibes, and joys revealed in America's First Ladies add texture to the more secretive administrations, and color to the sterner and more stoic ones.
