Praise for The President's Daughter

“Rarely have I read such a nuanced, realistic, understanding and forgiving mother/daughter relationship.”—A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy

“Her characters are sometimes sarcastic; they are also honest and vulnerable. Over and over, I believe her characters to be real; fully formed; I would recognize them on the street. They are flawed, they are funny, they are a mix of good and bad. They are complex.”—A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy on Ellen Emerson White
