Book giveaway – Abigail Adams: A Life

This weekend we’ll be celebrating July 4th, Independence Day.  And while there is abundant emphasis (and rightly so) on the founding fathers of our nation, we should also remember those women who contributed mightily to the fight for independence.  In Abigail Adams, Woody Holton introduces us to the complex woman who helped shaped America more than perhaps any other of the “founding mothers” through her influence on her husband.  Holton does an excellent job of highlighting Adams’ strengths as well as her weaknesses, giving us a well-rounded, quite readable biography of this great woman. He certainly does Adams justice in examining her life as a woman and not simply as the wife of a founding father.
