The life of Martha Custis Washington, with special emphasis on her childhood, her girlhood and her early marriage to Daniel Custis- her happy years as a beautiful, wealthy, happy woman with darling children. And at 26 she was a widow- and at 28, wood and won by a young officer of the Colonial Army, George Washington. A rich family kind of book, which has a quality of romantic interest for girls- and which fills in some human sides of the story of our first president. Historical background gives this value as supplementary reading. The pictures by Nedda Walker add charm. In typography and layout, the book looks younger than its text warrants. I'd place it for fifth to seventh grade level.
