Washington DC was once a place where people actually talked to each other…where adversaries fought on the Senate floor and then smoothed things out over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. But it was all about to change and Hester Ferris has a front row seat as she hosts the Georgetown dinner parties that can change the course of Washington’s politics. When her beloved son Colin suddenly turns up with an ambitious 'Reaganite' girlfriend and a shocking new conservative world view, Hester must choose between preserving her family and defending the causes she’s spent her whole life fighting for.
Follow the Ferris family from the end of Carter’s presidency through the Reagan era and into Obama’s game-changing inauguration.
