Summary, etc.:
"A revealing and explosive portrayal of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff's fifteen-year friendship with Melania Trump and observations of the most chaotic White House in history."-- Provided by publisher.
Wolkoff met Melania Knauss in 2003 and had a front row seat to the transformation of Donald Trump's then girlfriend. As their friendship deepened over lunches, black-tie parties, and giggle sessions in the penthouse at Trump Tower, Wolkoff watched the newest Mrs. Trump manage her highly scrutinized marriage. After Trump won the 2016 election, Wolkoff was recruited to help produce the 58th Presidential Inauguration. Melania put Wolkoff in charge of hiring her staff, organizing her events, helping her write speeches, and creating her debut initiatives. It all fell apart when Wolkoff was made the scapegoat for inauguration finance irregularities. Here Wolkoff takes you into Trump Tower and the White House to tell of her friendship with a woman few people truly understand. -- adapted from jacket
