Editorial Reviews

Vivid, splendid reading—reading for pleasure, for profit, for a sure grasp of the past that made the present possible. — William ManchesterAn admirable book about an admirable person. . . . Thoroughly engrossing. — Jonathan Yardley (Washington Post Book World)Engrossing family history, very well told. — Kirkus ReviewsA poignant, even heart-wrenching story. The Buels make clear just how disruptive the Revolution was in the private lives of families. It is a beautifully written, irresistible story that tells a lot about what the Revolution really meant. — Richard L. Bushman, Columbia University
