It is April 1915: President Woodrow Wilson (John Glover, TV's Smallville), reeling from the loss of his wife, meets, falls in love with and marries Edith Galt (Laila Robins, TV's Homeland). She very quickly becomes important—and influential—to her husband, and inconvenient to his circle of advisors.

With the first World War looming, the President falls ill, and Edith, with effortless ease, outsmarts the men of Washington who would derail her beloved husband’s dream of world peace and the League of Nations. But will her unstinting devotion to her husband’s ideals be their downfall?

A fascinating look at the real life events in which a woman became the de facto President of the United States.From the Tony-winning author of
Clever Little Lies.
