America's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie, 587 pages
It is an enthralling and intriguing story about the life of Thomas Jefferson's oldest daughter, who was alive during the Revolutionary War and traveled with him to Paris when he became America's minister to France. They were in France as that country's own revolution started.
Patsy was a wife and a mother of 11 children, but she was always foremost the daughter, companion and protector of her father. Reading this makes me want to learn more about his other family as well, the Hemings.
