Overview

Domestic Affairs: A Campaign Novel by Bridget Siegel

When twentysomething political fund-raiser Olivia Greenley gets tapped to work on the presidential campaign of Georgia governor, Landon Taylor, it’s her dream job. Her best friend in the world is the campaign manager, and Taylor is a decent, charismatic idealist, with a real chance to be a great leader. Sacrificing her sleep, comfort, friends, family and income for a year to make the world a better place is the right call, but what happens when both Campaign Lesson #1, No Kissing the Boss, and Lesson #2, Loyalty Above All, go down in flames before the first primary? 

Bridget Siegel, veteran of the John Edwards and President Obama campaigns, vividly captures the idealism and chaos, as well as the emotional heat and corruption, of the candidate’s bubble. What becomes of Olivia’s best friends when she must keep from them the biggest secret of her life?   Is the candidate a true romantic or a political hypocrite? How far can she go to justify her happiness?
Told with savvy, humor, and delicious inside-the-Beltway detail, Domestic Affairs is a page-turning tale of love on the campaign trail—and its consequences—from a consummate political insider.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Terry McAuliffe, former chair, Democratic National Committee
Bridget Siegel is a true political campaign insider and she has seen it ALL! Her novel, Domestic Affairs,is a fun, provocative read and offers a rare glimpse into what really goes on behind the scenes of a political campaign—the good, the bad, and everything in between.”
Jeffrey Frank, author of the Washington Trilogy: The Columnist, Bad Publicity and Trudy Hopedale
Bridget Siegel has probably spent too much time in the company of politicians, but her reward was to find enough material to write about her own presidential candidate: an adulterous southerner with major-league hair, impressive blue eyes and great-sounding empathetic ideas—in other words, someone who couldn’t possibly be based on a real person.”

Secrets, Passion, Tension… It all comes together in Bridget Siegel’s riveting new book.”
