Publisher's Summary

Florentyna Kane inherited a vast hotel empire from her father, but his greatest gift to her was a love of America. She knew from childhood that it was a debt she would someday try to repay by running for the highest political office in the country. Along the path to power Florentyna finds fulfillment in love and family, but still she struggles with the burden of her duty and responsibility. Then, only a heartbeat away from her ultimate goal, she may lose everything in a mire of betrayal. Is the price of power higher than even Florentyna Kane can pay?

Oops - Abridged

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I read this book many years ago and got hooked on Archer's story telling. This is one of Archer's best works but this abridgement took way took much out. The relationship to Edward and her arch rival (Ralph Brooks) were too edited to get the true story.

Disappointing

This book was not as captivating as Kane & Abel. Seemed to have very little action and was rather predictable. The narrator was terrible, too. I don't think she read Kane and Abel because the way she portrayed the characters were way off.

Abridged Recap

I was disappointed in this. Too much recap from the previous book. I was more interested in the future than finding out what happens in the character's past. The author dwells at length on her backstory and given there is only 3 hours to go here, I was quite bored.

Prodical Daughter

Enjoy the way Mr. Archer develops his stories. Moving story about a woman and the trials they go through.
