Sue Perkins
“Frightfully pale and perpetually odd”
Sue Perkins

John Ferling
“Adams drew back. He wanted Hannah, but he did not live for her. Making a name for himself was more important. He told her that he could not marry for years, until his practice was established. He knew that his honesty would doom the relationship, and Hannah in fact began to see others. Adams's ambition had triumphed over love.”
John Ferling, Setting the World Ablaze: Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and the American Revolution
