Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- Here, readers will encounter a multi faceted Adams not usually found in books writ ten for children. Beller's emphasis is on the strong, independent, visionary woman whose role in American history was much more than simply the wife of one president and mother of another. Readers are also presented with a de tailed picture of life in the colonies and in a young democracy. Clear writing and Adams's own words make history come alive; much of the dialogue is taken directly from the hun dreds of letters she wrote to her family and friends. Each of the 18 short chapters offers the subject in a different role: child, wife, patri ot, historian, peacemaker, etc. Numerous black-and-white photographs of her homes and family artifacts will add to readers' under standing of the period. A good choice for infor mation on early American life, this biography paints the hardships and joys of an emerging nation and the metamorphosis of a fascinating woman. --Valerie Childress, J. W. Holloway Middle School, Whitehouse, TX
