it was ok

I hate to say this, but I didn't finish this book. It was well written, but the chronology was driving me insane. We start out with Dolley Madison and skitter back and forth through her life, then we go to Martha Washington in the next chapter and skitter back and forth throughout her life. Abigail Adams and Sally Hemings are also portrayed, all women I wanted to learn more about, but I never knew if I was coming or going or what time frame I was in. I'm probably just overly grumpy right now and should give the book another shot when I have the time to really sit down and figure it all out. Again, well written, well researched. Just ... confusing.
