Washington’s Lady

Author: Nancy Moser
Genre: Life
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Historical fiction, biography
Number of pages: 414
Time period: 1700’s
My overall opinion: It was interesting to learn about Martha Washington’s life! I didn’t find it riveting, but it was a good way to learn about her. What a lot of tragedy she had! Losing children as babies and as adults, having her first husband die… it’s sad. Martha exasperated me with her parenting in the first 1/3 of the book. But by the end, even she saw her mistakes, so that made it better. The cover is rather deceptive…for most of the book, she’s not a slim young debutante. But it’s a pretty cover, so.
