Book Review - Amercian Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

I was thoroughly surprised by how much I liked the book.
The story chronicles the life of a young woman, a librarian.  From a tragic accident that occurs in high school to her days living as the wife of the most powerful man in the United States.  At times, it felt like I was reading about Laura Bush but that's ok.  Even my democratic self didn't feel there were strong political overtures throughout the book.  It was more of a love story. 

Through it all, I found myself pulling for the heroine and really thankful I don't live a life in politics. 
It was a pretty good read and I suggest.  3 out of 5 stars.
