KIRKUS REVIEW

Good fabrication on actual facts in the story of Martha Jefferson, her years in France from 1784 to the beginning of the French Revolution, her convent days as the only American, her friendships. Then the arrival of her younger sister, and of her cousin, Thomas Randolph, and the ups and downs before she married him and during Jefferson's term as Secretary of State, their management of the estate. Full of glimpses of historic personages, places and events; of anecdotal material of details of a girl's life at the time.
