Written with a true insider's perspective on the intersection of the personal and the political, A Time to Run is the remarkable literary debut by United States Senator Barbara Boxer of California, one of the most admired and respected figures on the national political scene. Senator Boxer, writing with Mary-Rose Hayes, tells an exciting tale of friendship and betrayal, idealism and pragmatism, in-fighting and public spin. The novel follows Ellen from her days as a college student, through romantic entanglements and a difficult marriage to a rising political star. After her husband is killed, she steps into his campaign for the Senate and is elected. On the eve of a crucial senate vote, her past and public worlds collide when her former lover, now a journalist with strong right-wing connections, gives her sensitive documents that could either make or break her career. From the hide-aways in the U.S. Capitol to the sprawling ranches of Orange County and the streets of Berkeley, this is a fascinating, up-close story of power and trust. A Time to Run is a great read that will generate great attention nationwide.
