Biography of Abigail Adams
Absolutely a great book. I really enjoyed reading this. Abigail Adams is one tough lady. The things she had to endure while her husband was away for so long was unbelievable. I ;don't think any woman today could endure what she did. I admire her so much. She was a very smart lady. She homeschooled her children. She inspired me to do it. She taught her children Latin! Yikes that is so difficult. Latin is not spoken anymore so that is a challenge now. She was an incredible lady.
I was introduced to Mrs. Adams by Laura Linney's portrayal in the HBO miniseries. I am happy to report that the show was pretty faithful, and that this lady really was ahead of her time, inspiring in so many ways. A feminist, a patriot, and a wife who demanded her husband be her life's partner. Abigail and John's was a true love story. And what a letter writer she was! With only a minimum of schooling, as was the custom for women of her class at that time, she was a faithful reporter who witnessed the birth of a world power.
One of the few first ladies who put her life forward for us to read. She gives a view or her life and President John Adams.
I was more than pleased to find this wonderful historical biography for less than a dollar used! I was assigned a book review o this work an long passed the renewal max for this book, but i did not want to spend the fifteen dollars to buy it. Thank you Amazon.
Interesting biography of our second "first lady." Book quality was excellent and the value was even more satisfactory. I love buying books on Amazon.
Plot not so great, but good info about her her husband.
Love it!
Its a lot of information that is somewhat boring. Huge book about Abigail Adams and I'm amazed that someone found her interesting enough to write so much about her.
