Contents / Notes

Bibliography, etc.: Includes bibliographical references (pages 651-662).
Summary, etc.: While it is fictionalized account of the relationship between Abigail and John Adams, it has been thoroughly researched and is accurate as far as the events in their are concerned. John and Abigail Adams were true partners in life. Their letters to one another showed that John considered not his wife, but his best friend, his intellectual equal and his greatest confidante. The book starts with the meeting of Abigail and John and their courtship in spite of her mother's initial disapproval. It centers mostly on Abigail who had the burden of making it all work while her husband pursued his political ambitions. They spent long periods of time apart while John was serving in Congress or in Europe. Quite often she had to do her best to make ends meet while John was not paid or belatdly paid by the government for his work.
