Every American Should Read This Book!



John Quincy Adams by Harlow Giles Unger is a gripping biography and highly recommended.  Every American should read this enlightening and exciting book about the great diplomat, lawyer and president who suffered great tragedy in his life and overcame it with aplomb and resilience. (I am Australian but I like American history). You will fall in love with this learned crusader who was a pioneering advocate of free speech and abolition.  The biography is never boring and reads like a novel.

Adams's wife, Louisa, was also a strong and clever person.  I am interested in reading more about her.

I had to read this on my Kindle but I'm very grateful to Net Galley for giving me a free copy.
