I've read tons of books on Washington and the founding fathers but this was the best, hands down. So much in there that I didn't know... As another plus, Scott Brick has to be the best narrator out there. Very impressed with the book and narration!
retired litigation lawyer; I read history; historical fiction; literary fiction. Narrator ++ important. Story equally so
On the one hand, this book straddles the line between history and historical novel. There is a LOT of " she must have felt" or "she no doubt was feeling". If that does not bother you ( and it did not me) then I recommend it without hesitation just for the story alone - a very interesting biography of a woman constantly adapting to survive, first to the turmoil of France during the revolution, then to being the wife of a compelling ( but difficult) figure in world history. Good narratioon - takes a little bit to get used to ( she seemed a bit flat at the beginning) but that soon gave way to the story itself
