What People are Saying About This

Richard Moe

In its own way, the story of the Levys at Monticello is as compelling as the story of Jefferson at Monticello. It’s not simply a story of how a remarkable family saved a special place, it’s a very human story—indeed, a very American story—wonderfully told. I highly recommend it.
