Hillary Clinton's famously private top aide and longtime advisor emerges from the wings of American political history to take command of her own story.
Abedin launched full steam into a college internship in the office of the First Lady in 1996, never imagining that her work at the White House would blossom into a career in public service, nor that her career would become an all-consuming way of life. She witnessed many crucial moments in 21st-century American history, and her relationship with Hillary Clinton has seen both women through extraordinary personal and professional highs, as well as unimaginable lows. Here Abedin reveals a crystal clear portrait of Clinton as a brilliant and caring leader, a steadfast friend, generous, funny, hardworking, and dedicated. She chronicles her marriage to Anthony Weiner, the devastation wrought by his betrayals, and their shared love for their son. Abedin's journey is a testament to her profound belief that in an increasingly either/or world, she can be both/and. -- adapted from jacket
