She tasted power and passion in the world's highest office against the backdrop of the Great Depression and World War Two.

Robbed of her home and job by the Great Depression, the future looks bleak for Iris McIntosh - until a chance encounter with America's indefatigable First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. Propelled into the White House's brilliant inner circle, Iris finds herself at the centre of momentous change ... and her heart torn between two men. But her loyalty lies with a third: the complicated and charismatic President Roosevelt, who will ultimately force her to question everything she believes in.

A compelling story of politics and power, love and loss, set in one of the most exciting and cataclysmic periods of history.

Jenny Bond

Jenny Bond has worked as a teacher, journalist, copywriter and researcher. Her non-fiction titles have been published in Australia and the USA and it was writing one about the stories behind great novels that led to her own first novel, PERFECT NORTH (Hachette, 2013). Inspired by the true story of a doomed Swedish ballooning expedition, Jenny decided to write about the impact on the lives of those left behind. Her second novel, THE PRESIDENT'S LUNCH, again incorporates real life figures with fictional ones, a technique that allows her to imaginatively interpret historical events. She lives with her husband and children in Canberra. For more information visit Jennybondbooks.com
