A DAUGHTER IS GIVEN
Except for her mother in a mental institution, the President of the United States, KC Kingsley, was the only person who knew that Katherine Ross was his biological daughter. The baby girl, crying and squirming, came from the womb to the guilt ridden mother who denied and rejected her. Katherine was given to her mother’s husband, James Ross, at the same moment her mother took the terror of her seduction, and denial of her baby, to the darkest places of her mind. At the age of seventeen, Katherine was cast into the Kingsley family by the sudden death of James Ross. Katherine and her mother are constant threats to Kingsley’s administration and marriage. His juggling act crumbled when his son fell in love with Katherine. Julianne Kingsley, turned her back on the president and became the champion of Katherine and her mother. Set in Washington D.C and Maryland—1950’s—when sexual misconduct could bring a politician down.
