The Ninth Daughter is an excellent new book, especially for those interested in history and/or Abigail Adams (a truly amazing woman).
Barbara Hamilton has done a marvelous job in writing this book. For those of you who are familiar with the letters of Abigail and John Adams, you will know that the author has done a remarkable job in recreating their relationship and background. And I don't think you necessarily need to be a student of history (though you may miss some inside jokes) to enjoy this book as the murder plot is unique and very suspenseful.Was this review helpful?

Though at times the plot is a bit over-convoluted, even if I wasn't a fan of Abigail Adams I would have totally enjoyed this mystery. The author does a marvelous job of creating the surroundings and the characters. The murderer was very much a surprise, which is always a sign of an excellent mystery writer.
I recommend this book and I myself eagerly await the next book in the Abigail Adams Mystery series.
