Mallon, Thomas

"A masterful retelling of a legend and famous headline of modern American history Harry Truman s upset victory over Thomas E. Dewey in the 1948 presidential election. Set in Dewey s hometown of Owosso, Michigan, this is the captivating story of a local love triangle that mirrors the national election contest. As the voters must decide between the candidates, so must Anne Macmurray choose between two suitors- an ardent United Auto Workers organizer and his polar opposite, a wealthy young Republican lawyer who s running for the state senate. Weaving a tapestry of small-town secrets, the people of Owosso ready themselves for the fame that is bound to shower down upon them after Dewey s sure thing victory. But as the novel and history move toward election night, we watch the townspeople, along with Anne and her suitors, have their fates rearranged in a climax filled with suspense, chagrin and unexpected joy."
