In their New York Times bestseller "Lincoln's Last Trial" ABC News Chief Legal Affairs Anchor Dan Abrams and bestselling author David Fisher unearthed a little-known chapter from the life and career of America's most revered president shedding a new light on his national ascendency.

Now in their new book, "Theodore Roosevelt for the Defense: The Courtroom Battle to Save His Legacy," the pair returns to resurrect another seminal case in presidential history: a 1915 libel case brought against Teddy Roosevelt that rocked the nation and American politics.

While America has never had a royal family, it certainly has dynasties. From the Kennedys to the Vanderbilts to the Rockefellers - wealthy and influential families who rule the gossip pages, society balls, charity functions, red carpets, and, even social media.

America’s fascination with the wealth and scandal of the upperclasses never fades. Maura Roosevelt, the great-granddaughter of Eleanor Roosevelt and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, invites readers into the hearts of an American family dynasty in its twilight years in "Baby Of The Family," a debut novel about the Whitbys: a family with a legacy akin to the Astors, once enormously wealthy real estate magnates who were considered “The Landlords of New York.”

Maura Roosevelt has been a full-time Lecturer in NYU's essay writing program, and currently she's teaching writing at USC.
