    "Engrossing!"

    I will count this among the very best books I have listened to. It was completely engrossing, and I dreaded having to stop listening to finally go to sleep. It was a tender look at both Martha Washington's thoughts and actions in her personal life AND her husband's little-known private words and feelings. For the majority who never realized what an inspiration she was to her husband, and how great impact she had in his life and our country's history, it is a real eye-opener. I never knew of the private heartbreak that Martha Washington endured in her life, having lost every one of her children over time, and the many other loved ones in her life that died. It was so typical of the times in American life, though, that illnesses, injuries, and diseases that we now have treatments and cures for were life-threatening just 200 years ago. Her strength in the face of those many losses was really inspirational to me. She made a conscious choice more than once to rise above the socially acceptable response of grieving, taking to bed, and generally becoming depressed. Her service to others, her husband, family, friends, and total strangers was also keenly inspiring. Her life was consumed with hostessing, nursing, and nurturing, and the author did a superb job, as did the narrator, of capturing her for the listener. Bravo!

    "One of the Best"

    This is one of the best books I have listened to. It kept me interested the whole time. I have a new appreciation for our founding fathers and their families.

    "Excellent Book!"

    Must read! The Washington's life was a difficult one but they loved each other dearly. I enjoyed how the author really brought these historical people to life and made them real. She showed how you can overcome obstacles and long separations and still be devoted to one another. Will listen to this book again and again.

    "Great!"

    I thought this was a great read. It really made my past visit to Mt Vernon come alive. It was a real love story and showed their dedication not only to each other but to our new country. The word "providence" is used often in this book.
    Providence it was for our first President and his
    lady.
    Good narration and should be a recommended read for all teens to read. As Americans they can
    relive the sacrifice that many men and women made
    for their freedom.

    "I did not enjoy"

    I was hoping for a bit more history. I didn't enjoy the reader's voice very much and found the book kinda silly. Glad others liked it, I didn't; it was a struggle to finish. The second half was abit more interesting than the first.
