Trying to remember a wonderful novel set in the 1950’s or 1960’s. I believe the main characters’ names were Anne and Neil. She was from a poor family, but would make fashionable outfits for herself to catch Neil’s eye. After they married, he went into politics. She tried hard to make Neil eat meals with all four food groups. They had a couple children. In the end of the book, it’s terribly hot in the city and Anne is lying down trying to nap, and Neil comes home and tells her he has been nominated to run for President.
