The First First Gentleman is an epic love story about the obstacles overcome by Melinda Sherman, a physically and emotionally wounded war hero who falls in love with a worldly political operative who manages her campaign for President of the United States. Their love is their greatest political asset. She speaks out in a stunning way that punctures the cultural orthodoxy and feeds the public’s hunger for a different political leader, while dark forces seek to undo her. This novel is a healing love story, a political thriller, a starkly honest social commentary, and an homage to Charles Dickens.

Gerald Weaver received his bachelor’s degree from Yale University and Juris Doctor degree from Catholic University. He has been a Capitol Hill chief of staff, a campaign manager, a lobbyist, a single father, a teacher of English and Latin, a collector and seller of Chinese antiquities and a contributor to The Times of London, The Big Issue, the political magazine, George, and many other publications. He lives in the suburbs of Washington, DC, and travels regularly between the United Kingdom and the US.
The First First Gentleman is mostly drawn from Gerald’s thirteen years in national politics and on Capitol Hill, and from a lifetime of observing national politics from a front row seat. Gerald still has many friends on Capitol Hill and in government, including a US Senator and a Presidential appointee. The First First Gentleman is a factually accurate political thriller that punctures the cultural orthodoxy, and a love story that ends with a remarkable woman in the White House.
The First First Gentleman is Gerald Weaver’s second novel.
His experience of reading challenging literature in order to survive a dark place served as a provocation for his sensitive, atmospheric, dreamlike, compassionate, unpredictable and wise debut novel, Gospel Prism, which brings into focus the relationship between literature, language, truth and religious faith.
