Read in January, 2009

A very slow read for me. Although many of the "behind-the-scenes" stories surrounding the Founding Fathers and their women were very new and interesting to me, they were not very well organized. I kept having to scan back for dates and names, making it a tedious read at times. There was little flow or focus throughout the book, as the author jumped from one story to the next, sometimes connecting back to a story in the first chapter. I also thought there seemed to be a lot of pointless quotes, including many pulled out of context.

I am glad to have learned about the women who raised and impacted so many great men, but I can't say that I'd recommend this book to just anyone. If you'd like to learn a very little bit about a great many women who brushed shoulders with the Founding Fathers, then maybe you ought to give it a read sometime.
