In the novel Evita: My Life by Helen Davis, a fictional Evita PerÃ³n tells her own spectacular story. Tracing her life back to her humble beginnings, when she is abandoned by her father, Evita takes the reader on her journey to become an actress and later, to the pivotal moment when she meets Colonel Juan PerÃ³n. Never content to stay in her husband's shadow, Evita reveals how she shares his belief that fascism will help the working class, and eventually begins doing work on her own as the president of the Society of Benevolence, helping the poor and winning the peoples' trust. As the times change (women get the vote), Evita begins to be even more powerful, running the Ministries of Labor and Health, starting a foundation, and running the first female party, The Female PerÃ³nist Party. A larger-than-life story, told in her own words, Evita: My Life is a novel that is as educational as it is entertaining.
