•        One consuming love affair

For Lucy Jones, the distinction between love and politics is hazy at
best. Both can be all-consuming, and either can lead to a heart-
breaking loss or an exhilarating win. Whatever the case, if you’re
seen as a loser, you probably are one. Lucy first learns this lesson in
1988, when she’s a shy girl, battling a high school bully and rooting
for Dukakis. Through the years Lucy will experience stunning
victories and agonizing defeats as she makes the choices that define
her. Meanwhile, she also struggles to define her relationship with
Monty, who comes in and out of her life like the changes in public
opinion. Is Monty simply a one-night stand, a kindred spirit, or the
love of her life? And by 2008, can he offer her a change to believe in?

Over the course of twenty years and six presidential elections, Lucy
grows and adjusts with the times. Filled with snarky political and pop-
culture references, November Surprise is about the journey we take
to believe in a candidate, in love, and in ourselves.

November Surprise is a companion piece to Campaign Promises,
which is free on Amazon. They can be read in either order. Both have
a liberal slant.
