If sexual shenanigans disqualified candidates for Congress, the U.S. would have no government. But what if the candidate was a pro-choice Republican supported by feminist groupsand a college rapist whose secret could be exposed by a leading women’s rights advocate?
Again and Again tells the story of Deborah Borensteinas an established women’s rights leader in 2010 Washington, DC, and as a college student, thirty years earlier, whose roommate is raped by a fellow student. The perpetrator is now a Senate candidate who has the backing of major feminist groups . . . which puts Deborah in a difficult position. Torn between her past and present, as the race goes on, Deborah finds herself tested as a wife, a mother, a feminist, and a friend.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings A political drama that had an interesting twist. Two storylines - one from the past as Deborah is in college and she becomes the activist that you see in the other storyline which is Deborah in the current time as she is the head of an organization that is bringing women's issues to the forefront in the political atmosphere in DC. I live in DC, but don't read or know a ton about the influence of organizations and how they really work with politics. I loved seeing the inside of the organization and how they influence politicians to make their issues a priority. I appreciated that the author put in the struggle with her husband and his job and how sometimes your home life can affect your work life and the balance can be hard, not just time management.
