Jenny Sanford to Release 'Inspirational Memoir' in 2010

NEW YORK -- The wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is writing a memoir. 

Ballantine Books, an imprint of Random House Inc., said Tuesday it will publish Jenny Sanford's "inspirational memoir" in May 2010. 

The publisher says Sanford "will grapple with the universal issue of maintaining integrity and a sense of self during life's difficult times." 

The book is currently untitled, and financial terms were not disclosed. 

Mark Sanford was once a rising star in the Republican Party. He acknowledged in June that he had a yearlong affair with an Argentine woman he called his soul mate. 

Jenny Sanford moved out of the governor's mansion in August, but she and her husband have said they're trying to repair their marriage.
