Currently Reading...

I just finished reading Path of Peril by Marie Wasserman.This is a work of historical fiction.

In 1906 President Teddy Roosevelt traveled to Panama to check on construction of the Panama Canal. This was the first time a US President traveled outside of the states while in office. Accompanied by his wife Edith, White House secretary Maurice Latta, and several others, the trip was risky in many ways. While yellow fever had been eradicated, other dangers persisted, primarily from a number of anarchists. Giving voice to many of those involved, we learn the stories that brought these people together and what happened on that fateful trip.
