Abigail Adams was one half of America's first husband-and-wife political team. Abigail, and her husband, John, the second president of the United States, were both major players in the birth of the nation. In addition to her role as first lady, Abigail, a spirited, outspoken, and witty woman, was also a mother, family caregiver, entrepreneur, and farm manager. Passionate about her ideals, she endured years of separation from her husband and sons so American democracy could be secured. Although life in the early republic was challenging, this vivacious first lady met challenges with verve and an abiding faith. Abigail Adams: First Lady presents an inspiring biography that details the triumphs and tragedies of her life.
