A very, very good history book. Jacobs did a very good job of not forcing her slant and thoughts into the book most of the time. There were only a couple of points where I got the feeling she was trying to push anti-religion or opinions of intimacy where their was little to nothing back it up, but this is still one of the best books on Abigail Adams (and her sisters) I have ever read or think I will ever read. Highly recommend this book for older readers because (view spoiler)
