More About First Family by Joseph J. Ellis
 
 
 
Overview

In this rich and engrossing account, John and Abigail Adams come to life against the backdrop of the Republic s tenuous early years.
Drawing on over 1,200 letters exchanged between the couple, Ellis tells a story both personal and panoramic. We learn about the many years Abigail and John spent apart as John s political career sent him first to Philadelphia, then to Paris and Amsterdam; their relationship with their children; and Abigail s role as John s closest and most valued advisor. Exquisitely researched and beautifully written, First Family is both a revealing portrait of a marriage and a unique study of America s early years.
