CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford’s memoir about dealing with Gov. Mark Sanford’s affair will be published next month instead of in May as initially planned.

Ballantine Books, an imprint of Random House Inc., plans to put the 240-page hardcover book entitled “Staying True” on sale Feb. 5, according to its Web site.

Jenny Sanford has filed for divorce, and a final hearing on the petition is scheduled for late February.

The publisher’s Web site says the memoir will reveal Jenny Sanford’s private ordeal behind her husband’s public betrayal.

Mark Sanford disappeared for five days last summer and returned to publicly confess an affair with an Argentine woman.

Calls seeking comment were left with Ballantine and Jenny Sanford.
