About This Book

" A focused, fresh spin on Jeffersonian biography. " — Kirkus Reviews In the tradition of Annette Gordon-Reed' s The Hemingses of Monticello and David McCullough' s John Adams, historian Virginia Scharff offers a compelling, highly readable multi-generational biography revealing how the women Thomas Jefferson loved shaped the third president' s ideas and his vision for the nation. Scharff creates a nuanced portrait of the preeminent founding father, examining Jefferson through the eyes of the women who were closest to him, from his mother to his wife and daughters to Sally Hemings and the slave family he began with her.
