Authors: Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie
Review: Linda Grischy
In this well researched novel, the lives of Martha "Patsy" Jefferson Randolph and her father Thomas Jefferson are skillfully revealed. The story covers Jefferson's adventures as Governor of Virginia and Minister to France, to President of the United States and his retirement, and Patsy's childhood, life as a mother and wife. I love the artful way the authors show how the pair cling to one another through tragedy and triumph, in an unusual bond between daughter and father. Although both Patsy and her father had independent family commitments, their lives were forever intertwined. Their love and devotion for one another carried them through their darkest times. This rich historical saga brings to life a different time and fascinating period of our country's beginnings. I've listened to the audio version and found it an excellent production and great compliment to the beautifully written novel. I highly recommend both book and audio version!
