I wrote out a fairly long review of this book before realizing that what I really wanted to say could be summed up in a much shorter review.

Mrs. Alford probably should have kept her secret. She should have been ashamed of the things she did and kept them to herself. There was no lesson to be learned from her mistakes. She wants us to believe she was a good person who was just naive. I call BS on that. Even as a grown woman her morals and actions were questionable.

I had a hard time feeling any sympathy for the young woman who was so easily seduced by the President.

I am sure this will go down as my least favorite book of 2012.
