Just finished a book by Anthony F. Lewis.
This novel takes place in Montana, 2013 -2014. It's about a Libertarian governor who is against a new federal law being implemented by the White House, nationalizing much of what the states have long, constitutionally, controlled.(sound familiar). It is a moral dilemma, in that, does the governor go against the U.S. government or follow the principles laid out in the constitution?
This book was written in 2004. However, it is almost prophetic considering what is going on today in Washington. The book is an easy, well flowing read with good characters. It gets into the inside workings of government and legislation in an entertaining and informative way, without being tedious.
Consider it for a summer read.
