Akers does a great job of placing the information from Abigail's letters into a story, without directly quoting the letters line by line. A story is presented to the reader through the eyes of the First Lady. It was a required text for an American History class, though I did enjoy reading it. The story itself; however, can be deeply depressing while still communicating the accounts of the famous political family. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about the other side of politics.

I couldn't read it through and through, this is definitely for history nuts. I've never liked reading about people's lives. She was definitely an extraordinary woman, but I just wish the book was written in an excitable tone. The pages just seemed to drag on. I needed this for history class, and was happy after I was done with it. The actually book I got arrived on time, and it was really good quality.

I read this for a history course. It is actually a very nice book. It is nice to see a feminine angle of someone so close to politics in the time of infancy for America. I was gladly surprised by some very nice viewpoints and moral outlooks that Abigail had.l

It was a great book to read just to learn more about history. It was in great shape, and it arrived sooner than I expected, I had no problems whatsoever.

While this was a quick read, Elizabeth Cady Stanton's bio was much, much better and far more interesting.
