About the Book

An intriguing portrait of one of America’s most famous couples.

John Adams was an American patriot and Founding Father, and Abigail, his wife, was his most trusted advisor for more than fifty years. While John served in both Continental Congresses, Abigail managed their farm within earshot of cannon fire. She later advised her husband through amusing letters as he served as our first ambassador to Great Britain. And when John was elected America’s first vice president, Abigail vowed to be his “fellow Laborer—and she steadfastly lived up to her promise.
