From the Publisher"Intimate, revealing — and sometimes downright embarrassing — the newly revealed love letters at the heart of The Harding Affair provide an altogether fresh look at a future American President hopelessly in love with a woman not his wife."
—Geoffrey C. Ward, author of A First-Class Temperament and The War: An Intimate History, 1941-1945
“A crackling history by Greater Cleveland lawyer James David Robenalt gives Ohioans a peek, five years early, at court-sealed love letters that Warren G. Harding, the last Ohioan elected president, sent to his long-time mistress, Marion neighbor Carrie Phillips. Considering that they deal with a presidency that ended 86 years ago, that's saying a lot… Hard to put down.”
–Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Warren Harding has always been ranked as one of the worst U.S. presidents. But [this] book might just boost his image. Readers will see a tender, human side of Harding and also learn about his opposition to President Woodrow Wilson's nation-building efforts abroad after World War I — an issue that still resonates. If he had assumed the presidency in 1917 instead of 1921… [it may have] led to an outcome that would have drastically changed the course of the 20th century.” –The Columbus Dispatch
