Review of America's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie

America's First DaughterAmerica's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie was an exceptional and epic read! It has surpassed Gone With The Wind as my favorite novel ever. It is a beautifully written historical fiction novel about Thomas Jefferson’s beloved daughter, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph. Patsy is audacious and lives an adventurous life, following her father from Virginia to his diplomatic post in France after her mother dies. She meets loads of interesting characters along the way and finds and loses love. In addition, she is tasked with bolstering her father’s sometimes wavering confidence as well as keeping his, and other family member’s, secrets. Although she revels in the richness of Paris life, she returns to Virginia and a much harder way of life. She faces traumatic situations and ultimately sees the family’s fortune lost due to means beyond her control. This book will take the reader through a vast array of emotions, leaving them better for having known the characters.
