Book Recommendation: My Dearest Friend

My Dearest Friend *Click here to request this book*My Dearest Friend: Letters of Abigail and John Adams, edited by Margaret A. Hogan and C. James Taylor

Ms. Hogan is Managing Editor and Mr. Taylor is Editor in Chief of the Adams Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Exciting for us also at Perrot is the fact that Margaret Hogan was a former library page in the 1980’s. Nice to think we started her on her literary career! This book has been very well received in the review media. John and Abigail Adams really had a partnership. She was his chief advisor and confidante on political matters and policies. This is an intimate look at their relationship during the years of the creation of the United States.
