The characters are interesting and the sentences flow smoothly, but what I found myself staying up late into the night to read more of were the details.
Details of caring for a dying sister.
Details of preparing oneself for the publicity of a nation grieving.
Details of handling the politics of becoming a United States senator.
Abigail Adams, the main character of The Accidental Senator, manages all of these details in an efficient and clever manner.
Almost as interesting as this book is the bio of its author. She's worked for a lobbyist in Washington, D.C., was a pediatrician and a television health reporter. Her experiences added so much to the details of this story. And she states that a portion of the proceeds of her writing goes to children with Autism. Amazing!
