Written in a cute, elaborate vintage style and easy to read, this is probably the best biography of Martha Washington Ive ever found. All Sally Fairfax areas are handled with unusual grace and tact--so many Martha biographers want to make Sally out to be evil and seductive--and the authors grasp of personality is very strong. Martha Washington was a very bland woman and many historians have difficulty resigning themselves to her ordinariness.

They try to make her out to be a fascinating or striking woman in some way--or they pick on her for being a bore. This author does neither. She tells us who Martha was, honestly and fairly. I strongly recommend this book for anyone whos a fan of the Washingtons or whos struggling with remembering the events of the American Revolution. Its like a good movie--which is always my test for an excellent biography.
