    Wonderful Read

    I found this to be an excellent book that lays out some facts of Washington's life from his youth to his death. It was riveting and exciting to know that the man we call the father of our country was an extraordinary person but yet so ordinary in many ways. This book also shows how the politics of the creation of our country was as bitter at times as it is today. A well written book and I truly enjoyed the history yet also the adventure of finding the letters. Great read.

    This is written in the language of the day and captures the perspectives of the characters.  The content of historical facts lend credibility and the rest is more than enough to make it a winner!

    A Fascinating Blend of Fact and Fiction

    Martin really nails the story in this part fact part fictional account of the life of George Washington. The style of the book is one I have not seen very often. In lieu of chapters, there are fictional narratives of those who knew Washington best. Some narratives are pages long, while others are a few sentences. Teaming one of the most famous men in American history with a gripping writing style make this another William Martin success! The ending is just as surprising as the rest of the book, and I cannot wait to pick up the next book by Martin.

    A Living Washington!

    Much like Gore Vidal's portrayal of Abraham Lincoln, William Martin manages to bring Geroge Washington to life . . . sort of. I say sort of because so much of this book is wriiten from the perspective of Washington's fictional acquaintances both positive and negative. In that way, it may actually be more similar to Vidal's 'Burr'. A very enjoyable read from start to finish.
