While John was traveling to help begin the new country, Abigail remained at home, writing letters to her “Dearest Friend,” raising 4 children, & managing the family finances. Chronicles their remarkable marriage, her feminism, her battles with the loneliness of separation, & her friendships with Jefferson, Madison, & other giants of her time.
