Is America ready for a female president? This sequel to the highly successful "Kane and Abel" explores that possibility as it follows the life of the only daughter of famous hotelier Abel Rosnovski. Florentyna Rosnovski, born into wealth and groomed to one day overtake a hotel empire, is a second generation American immigrant who has a falling out with her father after falling in love with the son of his fiercest enemy. Forced to make a fresh start on the West Coast, Florentyna combines her extreme intelligence and love of women's fashion to open her own chain of high class clothing boutiques. Upon Abel's death, she inherits a slew of hotels second-to-none in every corner of the globe and teams with husband Richard to ensure their continued success. Always possessing a vested interest in politics, it is only at the urging of a childhood friend that she enters into the spotlight as a public servant. Everything else, as they say, is American history. The book is insightful and entertaining but lacks the creativity and depth of its predecessor, with which it was sure to draw comparison. In fact, any "Kane and Abel" fan will be sorely disappointed and feel cheated during "Daughter", as Archer feels it necessary to repeat, in exact words, page after page, whole episodes and storylines previously penned in his original epic. It is only after Florentyna reaches adulthood and pushes the past behind that readers will become immersed in her struggle to be successful in both business and politics.
