I had trouble putting this book down each night, because the author did such a great job of drawing me into Abigail's life and times. She's painted neither as especially sympathetic nor is she painted as completely bad. (Although she's primarily a likeable character, she comes across as a real person.) I highly recommend it.

This is a great book that shows the life of a female during the Revolutionary war, and the founding of our country. I loved learning about her feelings and opinions of the time. It also shows that Great Presidents have great wives at their sides. They do not run the country on their own.
