She's known him her whole life. Duke Mason has revealed to no one, as much as he has to Athena, his true nature. And when he becomes president, she realizes that it is her duty to stop the disaster that only he can wreak. As he attempts to control the country more and more, citizens begin migrating to the Colony, a place that is safe from Mason's control. But Mason is after more than just the presidency and Athena will have to stop him without sacrificing the only thing she's ever wanted: her family.
This is for the start-up founder before she’s raised her millions, right before she’s about to give up. The woman who left her boyfriend for something more, risking being alone over being just okay. The one right about to travel the world for a year, that’s only been to Canada in the last ten years. The one raising sensitive and savvy sons, humbled daily by motherhood. The woman who quit her VP job to go work on a farm in New England. The woman who left her country in search of more.
The woman who long ago started doing things according to a call she could barely hear but couldn’t ignore. This is for you.

With her husband’s encouragement, and her partner’s prodding, she took time off to go to a fishing village and slow life down to reflect.
