That is certainly unusual for a historical romance, but it shows she did her homework. This can only be accomplished though meticulous research. As for her hero, Phillip, he has more than his share of flaws, but under it all, Emery shows that he is basically a good-hearted man who cannot stand by when others are suffering. In several instances he helps other people at great risk to himself even when there is no reward in it for him.
Emery put Phillip through a lot of suffering himself during the course of the book.
I was beginning to think there was no hope for him. Every time things seemed to be looking up, she hit him with another disaster, often of his own making. But like every romance, love triumphs at the end. Experiencing the agonies and ecstasies of the gaming tables, their tale of passion and drama plays out through heartbreak and loss, before final culmination in redemption and enduring love.

Bush himself a former U. Eisenhower, and the son-in-law of former U. Not a positive image of the people who live up the hill, with their big cars.
I always confused her with Tricia [Nixon]. It sounds so silver spoon. Anyway, I was showing the band the song. I knew the chord changes and could feel the energy. Yet I was showing the band the structure, my normal gig as the musical director of the band. So, I went into the bedroom, sat on the edge of my bed with a yellow legal tablet and my felt-tipped pen.
Out came the song. Out it came, onto three sheets of legal paper. I played that song at an antiwar protest. As I was walking in the hallway after our set, someone came up to me and told me what an awesome version we had played.
