Inhaltsangabe: In the summer of 1966, Christina Hardcastle Tiny to her illustrious family stands on the brink of a breathtaking future. Of the three Schuyler sisters, she s the one raised to marry a man destined for leadership, and with her elegance and impeccable style, she presents a perfect camera-ready image in the dawning age of television politics. Together she and her husband, Frank, make the ultimate power couple: intelligent, rich, and impossibly attractive. It seems nothing can stop Frank from rising to national office, and he s got his sights set on a senate seat in November.
But as the season gets underway at the family estate on Cape Cod, three unwelcome visitors appear in Tiny s perfect life: her volatile sister Pepper, an envelope containing incriminating photograph, and the intimidating figure of Frank s cousin Vietnam-war hero Caspian, who knows more about Tiny s rich inner life than anyone else. As she struggles to maintain the glossy facade on which the Hardcastle family s ambitions are built, Tiny begins to suspect that Frank is hiding a reckless entanglement of his own one that may unravel both her own ordered life and her husband s promising career."
