An overachiever who is driven by an ambition to succeed, Samantha Harrison has set out to be the first woman president in United States history. With her devoted husband Ben behind her, she begins her campaign with Zachary Watts, a determined campaign manager with questionable ethics. As her campaign begins to take shape, Samantha is forced to deal with a crumbling home life as she continues her quest to hold the highest office in the land. Forced to decide what she's willing to lose to win, Samantha's choices will ultimately determine who's standing beside her in the end. Highlighting Samantha's personal conflicts and burning desire to win, Presidential Intentions creates a gripping political drama that examines the personal cost of realizing her dream. With an innocent naivety on the human capacity for evil and certain blindness to the things around her, Samantha might achieve her goal; however, she might never truly know what it costs her. A mesmerizing and thought-provoking look into the interior of U.S. politics, this complex novel has a lasting appeal that will keep readers thinking long after the book is through. Written for anyone interested in politics or the rise of women, Presidential Intentions appeals to political junkies everywhere as well as anyone immersed in women's issues in business and politics. The first book of its kind to profile a woman presidential candidate's life, this engrossing story tells the story of the sacrifice required in the quest to become the first woman president in American history.

The author created vivid interesting characters. It was well written with good pace.
The most memorable part was when President Bush called Samantha to his office.
The narrator had an enthusiasm that kept me listening. Her voice was pleasant and easy to listen to.
I was happy at the end when the estranged daughter knocked on the door.
"Republican rhetoric in boring story"
If you agree with Republican platform, you will like this book. It is a novel about a female presidential candidate who has a disappointing personal life. Introduces real characters (Obama, Hillary Clinton, etc.). I found it amateurish, boring and politically biased.
