Rita Mae Brown amazes me because she writes in so many genres so deftly. This book was fascinating...who remembers their high school American history lessons? And how could a regular history class bring to life the historical figures in this novel set against the attack on Washington during the War of 1812?

Brown has marshalled her considerable research to create an interesting novel with a unique portrait of a first lady who has been much ignored.
