When Emily and Jack meet by chance on a Cape Cod beach, it’s the beginning of a tumultuous twenty-year romance that takes them into the eye of war and the heat of politics. Along for the ride are four Harvard University friends who are members of the Kennedy Club. Aspiring to the ideals of former president John F. Kennedy, the group’s goal is to get Jack elected President of the United States.
Coop, Jack’s best friend and trusted campaign manager gets caught up in the fight to stop the destructive practice of mountaintop mining devastating his home state of West Virginia and becomes a terrorist activist against the coal companies.
Will Coop’s new mission put Jack’s political career in jeopardy? Will Jack’s ambition to be president outweigh his love for Emily, and will she be able to set aside her own career to help him achieve his dream?
How does anyone survive the fight to become the chief executive of the country?
