America's First DaughterOn completionTwo stars and I will explain why You may be looking for exactly what this book gives but not me The book ends with an authors note that explains in detail both the liberties taken in altering known facts and a clear declaration of what were the authors intentions for the book I am extremely thankful for this clear declaration It is stated outright that we are given a view of the events through Martha Jefferson Randolph s eyes and that characters are romanticized for dramatic purposes Martha Jefferson Randolph is Thomas and Martha Jefferson s daughter The book is meant to leave a dramatic punch This is not what I was looking for and romance is not a popular genre for me The authors do not alter facts to give a misrepresentation but rather to tighten the time line for brevity The problem is that much remains unknown DNA testing The Rap Year Book has today shown that Sally Hemings children were fathered by Thomas Jefferson but I read this in fits and starts over a period of months mainly because I didn t find it as interesting as My Dear Hamilton The main character Martha Patsy Jefferson annoyed me at the beginning wither youthful self righteousness but as she aged I found Boat In Our Baggage her to be sympathetic Definitely well researched the authors do an excellent job of bringing the era to life As might be expected Jefferson s years in France are depicted butis relationship with Sally Hemings is dealt with at a distance While seemingly a paragon of female virtue at times Patsy played fast and loose with the truth Patsy was fiercely loyal to Helsinki Insight Pocket Guide her father ander family and she didn t ave an easy life The work of daily life was didn t ave an easy life The work of daily life was and the sacrifices were many There is a love story scandal duels and drunkenness Overall this book teeters on the edge of the melodramatic and I seriously doubt that Patsy played as pivotal a role in the making of a nation as was portrayed If you think politics are dirty today you should read about the politics in our American istory Other than GEORGE WASHINGTON A LOT OF DIRT WAS SPREAD ABOUT Washington a lot of dirt was spread about In the race of 1800 Jefferson was said to be dead an atheist and a coward John Adams was supposed to be a tyrant and a criminal Jefferson said to be a swindler begot by a mulatto upon a alf breed Indian suaw and Adams was called a Untitled hermaphrodite American politics apparently was never for the faint ofeart This well written and researched book about Jefferson s oldest daughter Martha Pansy Jefferson Her mother died when she was young in childbirth so Martha was by Jefferson s side throughout Beautiful Dreamer his career She was withim when the British chased Humortivacion him out ofis Glaucos 02 home whene was in Paris during the beginning of their revolution and served as Food And Gender hisostess while To Greet The Sun he was president She gives us an uniue perspective of our early days I found the parts about Lafayette especially poignant Two themes run this book One is the deplorable state women were in They often died in childbirth belonged to theirusbands and put up with all types of abuse The other was slavery Although intellectually against slavery there was a strong practical reason to keep it money What to doJefferson wrote those famous words all men are considered eual but not women or slaves He was on the Practicing Catholic horns of a dilemma becausee was a slave owner The Modern Philidor Defence had a slave wife and children and depended on the income from the practice He wrote in a letter on the subject Justice is on one scale and self preservation in the other Marthaad 11 children tired just writing that and raised Defensa De Los Intereses Cat Licos En El Ecuador herusband s sisters She was often torn between Meetings With The Archangel her duties toer usband and to er father Heaven know when she ad time to be a mother She wielded a lot of power but in a back door way She rarely was asked for er opinionAnd she ended up mostly penniless Jefferson s penchant for Caught For Pleasure hospitality dider in This is an interesting book and I really learned a lot One of the chara.
