KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the sort of book that helps make history come alive. James Madison has always seemed a fairly colorless, static figure, his wife is virtually a legend. Here- without the psychological dissection characteristic of this biographer- Dolly Madison is brought to life as a rounded personality, against a vital picture of a period. Her story spans two wars, the welding of the colonies into a nation. There's anecdote and color and drama. Good reading.
