When Daisy Richardson’s father dies – it’s a big deal, not only because he was a seasoned politician in Washington DC, but because he leaves behind a financial, emotional mess for his wife and two daughters to live through. And especially, Daisy, who is trying to build her career in politics as the brilliant chief of staff for a popular junior senator.

It’s surprising to see how well Sense and Sensibility translates to the modern world – trying to be happy in a judgmental, sometimes shallow world. Daisy is so likeable and works so painfully hard make life better for her sometimes-lost mother and loosie-goosey sister. Ladies of the House is good sometimes-light-headed, sometimes-serious read. And bonus: the cover is sophisticated enough to not be embarrassing for your spring break, beach reading.
