The Prodigal Daughter by Jeffrey Archer

Florentyna Kane inherited a vast hotel empire from her father, but his greatest gift to her was a love of America. She knew from childhood that it was a debt she would someday try to repay by running for the highest political office in the country. Along the path to power Florentyna finds fulfillment in love and family, but still she struggles with the burden of her duty and responsibility. Then, only a heartbeat away from her ultimate goal, she may lose everything in a mire of betrayal. Is the price of power higher than even Florentyna Kane can pay?
