As the axiom goes, “Politics makes for
strange bedfellows.” One rising politico, however, was
less interested in finding bedfellows and more interested
in finding meaning in the dating world of rough and tumble
Washington politics. What she discovered, laid out in a humorous
tale of love and punditry, is that politics also makes for
strange soul searching. In Finding Mr. Righteous
(Post Hill Press, February 2014), author Lisa
De Pasquale navigates the twists and turns of dating, career
and spirituality. Her tale comes as a refreshing reprise from
the stories of the many young women who use dating in the
nation’s capital to advance their careers. Ms. De Pasquale
was looking to advance her religious understanding.
A Christian-in-name-only, De Pasquale, despite
her honest assessment of her own insecurities, approaches
dating with a free spirit, choosing men from across the spiritual
spectrum to aid in her quest. An Atheist. A Catholic. A Quaker.
A Preacher. A Jew. Some gave her the answers she yearned for,
while others left her with more questions. Her honest and
humorous reflections on trying to find love and God serves
as a roadmap for other women, regardless of age. Her story
is filled with shortcuts, dead ends and warning signs on the
path to a stronger faith and a stronger self.
"Lisa De Pasquale is one of the best conservative
writers out there, but this book isn’t about politics.
It’s a fascinating and extremely personal account of
her dating life, her massive insecurities, and her mostly
ineffective search for God,” said New York Times Bestselling
Author and Columnist Ann Coulter.
As Lisa’s star continues to rise
in the political movement, she offers an engaging look at
her quest to find her Mr. Righteous, a journey that led her
down a path of religious confusion and spiritual discovery.
She navigates the waters with humor and humility, and it’s
a joy to accompany her as she grapples with some important
questions in a city most think populated exclusively by cynics.
Will she find her soul mate or save her soul? And is having
both asking too much?
