Jenny Sanford, Wife of Cheating S.C. Gov, Writing ‘Inspirational Memoir’

September 22, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Jenny Sanford, the wife of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, scored a book deal to pen an “inspirational memoir,” which will focus on the recent difficult times in her life.

She recently separated from her husband, after she discovered he was engaging in an extramarital affair with an Argentine woman and Gov. Sanford disappeared for nearly a week in June, to be at his Mistress’ side in Argentina.

During the media blitz that ensued when Gov. Sanford finally returned from Argentina and held a rambling, tearful press conference admitting the affair to his constituents, Jenny Sanford displayed a steely demeanor. She did not stand by his side, as he confessed to his infidelity, like so many other spouses of cheating politicians.

Her memoirs will be published by Ballantine Books and will hit store shelves in May 2010.

The publisher says Jenny Sanford “will grapple with the universal issue of maintaining integrity and a sense of self during life’s difficult times.”

Ironically, Gov. Sanford had his own book deal, but the publisher cancelled the deal after the scandal broke. Gov. Sanford is hanging on to his political life by a thread. South Carolina lawmakers, as well as his own Lieutenant Governor, continue to pressure him to resign from office.

Jenny Sanford moved out of the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia, S.C., in August and returned to their home on Sullivans Island with her four sons.

Her book does not yet have a title.
