Reader recommendation: First Family, Abigail and John Adams

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


I just completed First Family: Abigail and John Adams by Pulitzer Prize-winner Joseph Ellis. From over 1,200 letters between Abigail and John, Ellis provides the reader with a deep sense and appreciation of John’s commitment and contribution to the founding of the American republic and Abigail’s unswerving support of her husband’s calling. A must-read!
