KIRKUS REVIEW

A loving account, from old letters and records, of Kenmore, the historically famous Virginia homestead, tells of the family life there, the vicissitudes during the years until it was made into a show place. Here is Fielding Lewis and his bride, George Washington's sister, the building of the house, the daily round, the family history: here too are intimate family sidelights on the first president, on the famous people who came and went, on the details of each and every room. A speciality book but an account worthy of its subject.
