Rita Mae Brown's fascinating recreation of the life of Dolley Madison is a masterful blend of fact and fiction. Dolley was the remarkable First Lady who had the President's ear and the nation's heart, a Washington hostess of world-renowned charm, and a legendary figure who barely escaped as her beloved city burned.
"[Dolley P. Madison] is revealed as an enchantingly imperfect First Ladyè. Eight years of research went into this book, and it shows. Brown's version of the day Dolley salvages the Gilbert Stuart portrait of Washingtonè is a humdinger."—Chicago Tribune
