Read in March, 2009

After reading "John Adams" by David McCullough, I was anxious to read this book and it was good but some of the letters written between John and Abigail were hard to understand. The author was not very good at explaining terms or conditions that were going on at the time. Also, although the author thought it was interesting to let the reader read the letters as they had been written by John and Abigail (including all mistakenly capitalized words, misspelled words and poor grammar), it made it hard to read sometimes.

Still, you can't help but be impressed by John and Abigail Adams' complete devotion to one another (especially Abigail's astounding patience and uncanny foreknowledge of the importance of what her husband was doing) and the influential role they both played in the founding of our country. Theirs is a great love story.
