Heartwarming, happy, fulfilling.

Charming ,witty, fun, romantic story. So enjoyable, it kept me up past my desired bedtime. She is one of my favorite authors.

The President dies in office. His wife Cornelia is asked to continue the job of first lady for the vice president who is single. She doesn't want the job and uses a disguise to escape the White House and travels as an ordinary person. While traveling she joins Matt who is driving for several days to deliver two orphaned girls to a relative. The girls are Lucy age 14 and Button a baby. Lucy has a significant role in this book. She is also the main character in the sequel “The Great Escape” where she is 31.

Anna Fields was very good.

Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 376 pages. Swearing language: strong, including religious swear words, but rarely used. Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: about 4. Setting: current day US. Copyright: 2000. Genre: contemporary romance.
