review 1: This was a well researched story taking place outside Boston during the Revolutionary War. The author did a good job of recreating everyday life for a widowed wife of a revolutionary soldier. I thought the actual plot was a little contrived and predictable, and Lizzie's attempts as a spy, silly; but I was so wrapped up in the everyday lives of Lizzie, Martha and Eliza that the plot on John Adams life was secondary to me. So overall, a 3 star, but I did enjoy the read.
review 2: Susrprisingly good, especially for short bus rides, because even a few pages create a mood, through details of daily living (down to a recipe for orange cake), descriptions of the political tensions of the time, the narrator's philosophical observations, or the challenges that each of
... more the three main female characters face. Some beautiful descriptive language pops up unexpectedly when the author/narrator integrates details with larger picture observations about that particular moment in history. I was sorry when it ended! less
