Reader recommendation: Abigail Adams

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I have just finished Abigail Adams, by Woody Holton, a splendid biography dealing with her expression of women’s rights not as a feminist, but as a wife, mother, grandmother, and citizen. I am delighted by this facet of Adams.
