A funny novel about ambition and marriage from the bestselling author of Girls in White DressesThe Hopefuls tells the story of a young wife who follows her husband and his political dreams to Washington, D.C., where they strike up a complicated friendship with another couple in the aspiring elite.

     When Beth arrives in D.C., she hates everything about it: the confusing traffic circles, the ubiquitous Ann Taylor suits, the humidity that descends each summer. At dinner parties, guests compare their security clearance levels and speak in acronyms, and once they realize Beth doesn't work in politics, they smile blandly and turn away. But things start to change when she and her husband, Matt, meet a charismatic White House staffer named Jimmy, and his wife, Ashleigh, and the four become inseparable, coordinating brunches, birthdays, and long weekends away. But as Jimmy's star rises higher and higher, the couples' friendship--and Beth's relationship with Matt--is threatened by jealousy, competition, and rumors.
