Washington's Lady by Nancy Moser

Washington's LadyPublished: 2008
Pages: 414

What struck me about this book was that Martha Washington was an incredibly hard worker. She was courageous and even in the face of adversity she didn’t give up. She was completely devoted to her children and her husband and making them happy was what drove her. You cannot read this book without developing a strong admiration for George and Martha Washington. The book gives you an insight into what life was like for the people and especially women of those times.

Not being from America so therefore having limited knowledge of American history, I found this book to be very informative. I learned much about America’s fight for freedom and the tyrannical way in which the British behaved, but on the other hand so many wonderful countries have become developed nations as a result of Britain’s expansion of the colonies.

Whilst this was an interesting book I found it to really drag in places and at times seemed almost repetitive. Still a good read if you have an interest in American history.
