Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meg Powers is the daughter of the President of the United States. Shes about to start college. Shes living through the worst year of her life. In June, Meg was kidnapped by terrorists—brutalized, starved, and left for dead. She was shackled in a deserted mine shaft and had to smash the bones in her own hand to escape.

            Meg Powers survived the unthinkable. Ahead of her is the grueling physical therapy to heal her broken body, and the challenge of leaving the safety of the White House for her freshman year at college.

            But harder still than the physical and social challenges ahead are her shattered sense of self and her family. Will she ever forgive her mother, the President, for her “can not, have not, and will not negotiate with terrorists” stance—even when it came to her own daughter? And, can Meg forgive herself for having the strength, the intelligence, and the wit to survive?

            In a brilliant tour de force, Ellen Emerson White tells her most ambitious and intense story about a most unlikely, but deeply affecting, heroine.

 

Ellen Emerson White started writing about Meg Powers in The Presidents Daughter and continued in White House Autumn and Long Live the Queen (coming in 2008 from Feiwel and Friends). When Ellen is not writing, shes watching the Red Sox. She lives in New York City.

Review:

"A crisply authoritative first-person narration and a plot line shot through with glimmers of fiercest hope make the fourth installation of the President's Daughter series a novel to luxuriate in, despite its grim particulars. The story starts about six months after the events chronicled in Long Live the Queen (first published in 1989), in which Meg Powers, daughter of the first woman president of the United States, is kidnapped by terrorists and escapes with her hand, leg and psyche shattered. When Meg begins her first semester at Williams College, the typical first-year challenges are magnified and distorted by the complications that come with being the President's daughter, her celebrity status (newly amplified by recent events), and the severe emotional and physical fallout of her ordeal. Making a welcome reappearance is Susan McAllister, the heroine of White's first novel, Friends for Life, who as Meg's resident advisor provides Meg with dispassionate guidance and, eventually, the beginnings of a friendship. Even at her most bruised and tetchy, Meg is awfully good company, and her peculiar situation with its attendant protocols is rendered in such exquisite and thoroughly researched detail that it can't help but command readers' attention. Longtime fans will welcome the chance to accompany Meg on her emotional journey, while newcomers will be motivated to track down the series' earlier books, which are scheduled for re-release in spring 2008. Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A riveting, contemporary story that is the author's tour de force!

Synopsis:

Meg Powers is the daughter of the President of the United States.  Shes about to enter her first year of college.  Shes living through the worst year of her life.
 
Last June Meg was kidnapped by terrorists - brutalized, starved, and left for dead. She was shackled in a deserted mine shaft and had to smash the bones in her own hand to escape.

 

Meg Powers survived the unthinkable, the stuff of nightmares.  Her terrorist captor is still at large.  But still she must live each day.  Ahead of her is the grueling physical therapy to heal her broken body; the challenge of leaving the safety of the White House for her freshman year at college. But harder still than the physical and social challenges ahead are her shattered sense of herself and her family.  Will she ever forgive her mother, the President, for her “can not, have not and will not negotiate with terrorists” stance - even when it came to her own daughter?

 
And more difficult still, can Meg forgive herself for having the strength, the intelligence and the wit to survive?

 

In a brilliant novel, Ellen Emerson White tells her most ambitious and intense story about a most unlikely but deeply affecting heroine.
