Publishing in January 2017, Why They Stay is about the lives of politically married women who have stood by their men after sex scandals. It covers Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Silda Wall Spitzer, Huma Abedin Weiner and several others.
"I found it really interesting, meticulously researched and well-documented. Why They Stay doesn't revert to sensationalism but really goes to the question of why they stay in the marriage."
--Stephen F. Medici, author of The Girls in Pleated Skirts
