Dear Abigail by Diane Jacobs

This is a moving and dramatic history about feisty Abigail Adams who had to endure the trials of war, the deaths of babies, and long periods of solitude when her husband was away. It is mostly about the strong and enduring bond between Abigail and her sisters Elizabeth and Mary, however.

I enjoyed reading about the various people in Abigail's extended family, such as her imperious daughter, and their stories so much that I felt that they'd become friends and I didn't want the book to end. Abigail is endlessly fascinating, and I'd love to read several books about her.
