Editorial Reviews

Review

This book has much to offer students and scholars of the early republic, and of gender relations in the nineteenth century.

(Karin Wulf Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography)

Clearly written and interpretively convincing. Jabour's singular contribution lies in the wealth of richly textured detail through which the reader comes to understand marriage both as a social institution and as the lived experience of real people.

(Anne M. Boylan Journal of Southern History)

Jabour's book has the advantage of giving us a microhistorical look at a single, well-documented marrriage, allowing her to trace the evolving tensions between ideals and realities over the course of their entire marriage and parenting experience. The result is engaging but sobering, as the reader is forced to confront the frustrations produced by the tensions in a marriage that was regarded as a model, loving union by the couple and their contemporaries.

(C. Dallett Hemphill Journal of American History)

A fascinating portrait of an intense, if sometimes rocky, relationship.

(Glenna Matthews American Historical Review)
