After seeing President Henry Caine reelected to a second term, Sofie Morse knows she can no longer continue as a journalist covering the White House. She is just too fed up with his outlandish behavior and all the chaos surrounding his administration, so she quits her job with no plans for the future. While she is trying to figure out what is next for her, she receives a phone call from the the First Lady's office asking her to come to the White House for a visit. Intrigued, she can't refuse. The First Lady wants Sofie to write her biography and agrees to give her unlimited access. This sets Sofie on a path with life changing implications that reach far beyond what Sofie could have imagined.
Our American Friend reveals just enough of the backstory and the current narrative in each chapter that I was compulsively turning pages, unable to step away. It keeps you in suspense until the very end.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
