I’m thrilled to share the cover of Stephanie Dray’s super anticipated new novel, Becoming Madam Secretary! It goes on sale March 2024. Becoming Madam Secretary traces the life of one of America’s unsung heroes: Frances Perkins. Frances Perkins was the first female Cabinet secretary, who helped pulled the nation out of the Great Depression. Becoming Madam Secretary sounds really exciting, and I can't wait to read it Here is the synopsis for Becoming Madam Secretary:
After moving to New York and throwing herself into the social scene, Frances Perkins met such people as millionaire socialite Mary Harriman Rumsey, then-budding author Sinclair Lewis, and the brilliant but troubled reformer Paul Wilson (with whom she falls deeply in love). Frances meets a young lawyer named Franklin Delano Roosevelt at a tea dance and over the next twenty years, they will form a historic partnership that will carry them both to the White House.
