 About the Book 

While John Adams career in law kept him away from his wife, Abigail, and their five children for long periods of time, Abigail wrote him hundreds of letters. These vivid and eloquent letters illuminate the daily life of a family during revolutionary Colonial times and speak of the exceptional character of our nations second First Lady. Abigail Adams: An American Woman is the story of this woman, told by Charles Akers through the vivid legacy of Abigail Adams letters. She was one of the first to speak up for womens rights, frequently calling on her husband to remember the ladies when forming his policies as president. Akers brings to life how Adams resolutely fought from the shadows of her husbands distinguished political career, at the same time developing one of the earliest voices of revolution among women.
