Physically fragile most of her adult life, Louisa Catherine was a woman of true grit. Although her formal education ended at age fourteen, she proved her intelligence many times over in her grasp of French and her ability to socialize in the highest circles both as guest and hostess, and her ability to be the woman behind the man, finally seeing John Quincy as President of the United States.
This book reads like a novel with an easy and steady rhythm, which is full testament of Heffron's talent and skill. Like Margery Heffron's life, which ended too soon and as she was writing this book, this story of Louisa Catherine ended abruptly with John Quincy entering the White House and Louisa Catherine becoming quite ill. Having given us the essence of this 18th Century woman, Margery Heffron also left her own legacy while adding to our historical knowledge of an important American family.
