According to Publishers Weekly, Ballantine Books has purchased a memoir written by Jenny Sandford, the wife of South Carolina governor Mark Sandford. The publisher calls the book an “inspirational memoir” that “will grapple with the universal issue of maintaining integrity and a sense of self during life’s difficult times.” Governor Sandford became tabloid fodder back in June when it was discovered he was having an affair with an Argentine woman. Jenny Sandford’s memoir will be on stands in May 2010.
