    " I loved this book. This was the second Nancy Moser book I had read and was not at all disappointed. I actually learned quite a bit. I had to admit I had no idea how horrible battles were back then. I also loved the love story between Martha and George. Very well written. "

    " Nancy Moser does a great job of putting the story back in history. "

    " Fun to read about the revolution from Martha's perspective. Reminded me of what amazing people they were and how willing they were to sacrifice for our country. I really enjoyed it because it seemed like an honest portrayal of their relationship - showing their strengths and their weaknesses. I would definitely recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresha | 10/30/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading this from her point of view. I liked how the author intermingled history with fiction to make it a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 10/20/2013

    " I was surprised there was not more history and by half way through the book I was tired of the voice. "

    " If you like your American history in the 'American colonists=good, British=bad', you'll enjoy this book. If you like your history delivered in a non-jingoistic manner where both sides exist in a shade of grey, you'll probably find the second half of this novel just as grating and hard to tollerate as I did (which is why I skipped most of it and went straight to the end). In that, she seems to have taken after Gilbert Morris. It suffers from all the same faults most Christian fiction does (sappiness, characterization that's lacking, plot that doesn't flow smoothly), though to a lesser degree than some, such as Janette Oke. If you want to get an idea about the life of Martha Dandridge Custis Washington, give this a read. I'd go find a non-fiction autobiography about Mrs. Washington if you're looking for a book you know you can trust for accurate information. "

    " I really learned from this book. Martha and George came alive for me. My respect for this first lady was really increased. It was a great read! "

    " I really enjoy historical fiction. This one did not disappoint. It was clean and very well researched. I love books about American History and this one was one of the best. "

    " not done with it yet! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 3/4/2013

    " This is a very enjoyable book. The geneology information gets a bit confusing but it is a tiny part. The author makes Martha Washington come alive while integrating historical information in a very interesting way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Stokke | 2/26/2013

    " I LOVE historical novels. This was a great perspective from Martha Washington's point-of-view. The beginning of our country is fascinating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin Cogburn | 1/5/2013

    " A little slow at first but very enjoyable! To quote from the end of the book, "May the main fact of this book be that it brought you a deeper appreciation of this country and the people who sacrificed so much toward its creation." I can definitely say it did! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 7/14/2011

    " This book was awesome! Martha Washington was a great woman, mother, wife and role model to the women of her time. She did it all and realized that having it all did not mean have the best dresses nor all the money in the world; it meant having freedom and choices. "
