  • Copies Currently On Shelf:

A what-if novel that "envisions the election of a United States President whose political power will redefine what the nation is-and what it means to be American... President Herbert Hoover has failed America. The Great Depression that rose from the ashes of the 1929 stock market crash still casts its dark shadow over the country. Despairing and desperate, the American people hope one of the potential Democratic candidates-New York governor Franklin D. Roosevelt and California congressman Joe Steele-can get the nation on the road to recovery. But fate snatches away one hope when a mansion fire claims the life of Roosevelt, leaving the Democratic party little choice but to nominate Steele, son of a Russian immigrant laborer who identifies more with the common man than with Washington D.C.'s wealthy power brokers.
