THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources, bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating, untold story of Thomas Jefferson's eldest daughter, Martha "Patsy" Jefferson Randolph--a woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and shaped an American legacy. From her earliest days, Patsy Jefferson knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jefferson's oldest daughter, she becomes his helpmate, protector, and constant companion in the wake of her mother's death, traveling with him when he becomes American minister to France. It is in Paris, at the glittering court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that fifteen-year-old Patsy learns about her father's troubling liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age. Meanwhile, Patsy has fallen in love--with her father's protégé William Short, a staunch abolitionist and ambitious diplomat. Torn between love, principles, and the bonds of family, Patsy questions whether she can choose a life as William's wife and still be a devoted daughter. Her choice will follow her in the years to come, to Virginia farmland, Monticello, and even the White House. And as scandal, tragedy, and poverty threaten her family, Patsy must decide how much she will sacrifice to protect her father's reputation, in the process defining not just his political legacy, but that of the nation he founded.… (mais)

A fascinating fictional biography of a woman that played a big part of history. I enjoyed the time in Paris, the love affair with William Short including the time at the end (again fulfilling a promise of no marriage) Yet I can not believe Patsy (Martha) would take a statement of caring for a father to such an extent. I was happy to find her willing to get married, liked Tom and felt sorry for his father's treatment to him (taking his inheritance away including his name), wondered if he really was so much in the President's shadow to get into such drunkenness, yet must have been a good man to make Governor 3 times. Nice treatment of slave mistress Sally Hennings. Wonder if there really was such nice treatment of their slaves, knowing most plantation owners had sex with their slaves. Martha seen as a sexual lover yet she acted more manly like than times would have suggested. ( )

Absolutely loved this book. Full of history and tidbits I hadn't known before. ( )

What started out as a 4-star read for me steadily became a 2-star one. I had hoped the story would involve less conjecture. Yes, there are parts that are based in history, but there are stronger, more effective parts that are not, namely Patsy's romance with William Short and whether or not her husband Tom was as abusive as he is portrayed in this novel. When it comes to historical accuracy, I'm pretty lenient; however, when real people are portrayed with such extreme characteristics as the ones in this book are, those characteristics should be heavily influenced by proven facts. If we portray real historical figures as vehemently as these authors did without basing the most memorable parts of the story on truth, we create myths and legends that many people will believe to be true and spread as fact.

Read my full review here. ( )

LOVED IT! Although a novel, the authors paid close attention to detail and information was gathered from letters and diaries - so authentic!
What a great heroine! ( )
