In running for political office, Roberta Mason learns unexpected truths about herself, as well as facing problems inherent in the American political process.

In her fifties, with two teenagers still living at home and a husband facing retirement, Roberta Mason agrees to join her best friend to test whether dedicated amateurs can possibly succeed in politics. As candidates they confront such problems as financing, balancing family responsibilities with the inexorable demands of the campaign, and whether personal integrity can be maintained without sacrificing political expediency. Roberta finds unexpected strengths within herself, and develops a healthy respect for any candidate who enters the political arena, but questions some practices inherent in the American political process.

Reviewer: carol bradshaw
What a refreshing look at local politics and the enormous amount of energy it requires to contribute to our form of democracy. Clark combines serious thoughts with hilarious comedy as her heroine struggles her way through this thicket of fund raising, speaches, constant eating and total exhaustion required of candidates running for office! Highly entertaining and enlightening.

  A Good Read , 09/16/2004
Reviewer: Carol E. Murray
This book was an ongoing saga of a political campaign,with its tiring round of seeing and being seen,the constant barrage of conflicting ethics, and the complexity of politics at every level. It was also a commentary on women being accepted at home, in a marriage, and in the business world. It chronicled the breakup of a marriage, the love of a mother for her children, and her finding of herself -- of her worthiness. Every part of this book allows the reader to recall, and empathize.
