The partnership between John Adams, the second president of the United States, and his wife, Abigail, well known for speaking out on women's rights, is one of the most famous in American history.
John's lifelong involvement in American public life included service in the Continental Congress, an ambassadorship to England, and election as the second president of the United States. Abigail fiercely supported the American Revolution and the young country it created -- as well as her husband's ambitious career. But while they were as drawn to each other as "steel and the magnet," they also went through the trials of extended separation. During these times, they relied on letters to keep their bond alive. With depth and insight, Judith St. George explores two of the founders of our nation. Book jacket.
