Book Review - Ladies of Liberty

Book Review: Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation by Cokie Roberts

Very well researched and written. Easy and pleasant to read. I felt that the main character was Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams. Her writings, and writings about her, added fresh insights into the historical period covered, from the John Adams to the John Quincy Adams administrations.

To a certain extent, the amount of coverage of each lady correlated with the amount of written material available about/by them from which to draw. Abigail Adams has a wealth of materials. Her daughter-in-law is even more interesting, in my view.

Note: This review prepared based on a copy of the book received from the publisher and originally published as a part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewer Program:

Happy Reading! ;-)
