106 posts | 90 read | 8 reading | 147 to read
In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources, bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating, untold story of Thomas Jeffersons eldest daughter, Martha Patsy Jefferson Randolpha woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and shaped an American legacy.From her earliest days, Patsy Jefferson knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jeffersons oldest daughter, she becomes his helpmate, protector, and constant companion in the wake of her mothers death, traveling with him when he becomes American minister to France.It is in Paris, at the glittering court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that fifteen-year-old Patsy learns about her fathers troubling liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age. Meanwhile, Patsy has fallen in lovewith her fathers protg William Short, a staunch abolitionist and ambitious diplomat. Torn between love, principles, and the bonds of family, Patsy questions whether she can choose a life as Williams wife and still be a devoted daughter.Her choice will follow her in the years to come, to Virginia farmland, Monticello, and even the White House. And as scandal, tragedy, and poverty threaten her family, Patsy must decide how much she will sacrifice to protect her father's reputation, in the process defining not just his political legacy, but that of the nation he founded.

I discovered that I knew very little about Martha Jefferson Randolph and her very difficult life at the hands of her husband. Having had no expectations for this book I now find that I have to recommend it!

Loved this insight into Thomas Jefferson 's life through his dsughter's eyes. She did more than we will ever know to help start our country.
The author included several facts that made the past realistic vs romantic and made me so glad that women have more rights now.

Patsy Jefferson Randolph is a character I've not thought much about, which makes a novel based on her life interesting. Thinking of historical figures as people w/flaws & drama instead of giant historical figures was fun. But it drags when ideas/events repeat themselves. Honestly, describing some relationships w/slaves as loving or romantic made me uncomfortable enough to take me out of the story several times. Interesting, but I wouldn't revisit.

jmtrivera For more thoughts, check out the #EclecticReaders podcast at EclecticReaders.fireside.fm/51 or in your favorite podcast app. Also, we talk about Harry Potter, because of course we do! 13mo
Ruri_kaichou I marked as 'pick' but I would say it needs to be between 'pick' and 'soso'. 13mo
jmtrivera @Ruri_kaichou Yes, I was a little torn between the two, but I was posting before I'd finished my coffee, and clearly, caffeine-free me is less generous.😆 13mo
Mc_cart_ny Can't wait to listen! I liked this one, enough so that I put myself on hold for their next book which I believe is about Hamilton's wife. 13mo

Behind every great man there is an even greater woman.

Truly made me stop and think. Jefferson through the eyes of his daughter/biggest champion, Patsy. All the accomplishments and flaws of the Jefferson family are laid bare. Convincing look into the contradictory mind of an 18th century woman.

Sally Hemings is interwoven as a graceful mistress (although not sure how one can be a mistress when enslaved.) Most painful aspect to me.

Enlightening.

Maggie_Reads Loved this book! I read their newest about Eliza Hamilton recently. Also very good. 13mo
Rebesta I have this laying around somewhere. I bought it and never started it. I should probably get around to it soon. 13mo
Wan.der.love @Maggie_Reads that one is on my TBR now!! - will be interesting to see how Hamilton is portrayed after reading about his frienemy Jefferson 13mo
Wan.der.love @Rebesta it‘s a good read - and educational. Took me a few chapters to get into it but once the main character was out of her adolescence I was hooked 13mo
Maggie_Reads @Wan.der.love His relationship with Jefferson is definitely addressed. I learned a lot about Hamilton that I didn‘t learn in school by reading their new book. 13mo

Finally have a little time to myself during this family road trip through Virginia - perfect setting to read about one of the most famous Virginia families in history.

Going through ups and downs with this book - seeing a lot of negative aspects to Jefferson (battling with the historian in me that is in awe of Jefferson as a revolutionary) about 30% in and story is starting to grab my attention.

And I think I wrote in the note that the same two authors just came out with another one a month or so ago. Thank you for allowing me to participate and for being my partner!!! The notes are so you can write more #jb notes and the pens because I‘m sure your running out of ink with all the writing you have been doing 😂😂 love ya! 1y

I enjoyed this novel... historical fiction that is based on some thorough research into the life of Thomas Jefferson‘s oldest daughter, Patsy. The book takes us through Patsy‘s life before, during, and after the war for American #Independence and the choices she makes for her father and the new nation. I thought the book was maybe a bit too long, but it‘s very well written and in-depth.

Loved everything about this book. It was so interesting. Patsy Jefferson, the daughter of Thomas Jefferson lived a full and fascinating life. Especially found interesting, the parts regarding her relationship with Sally Hemmings and her general view of slavery.
It never ceases to amaze me that so many of our founding fathers were against slavery, yet it continued on for generations. 😡

MisterWhitaker This is an interesting book. I'm glad they mention Hemmings, but I wonder how the first daughter felt about her siblings who were born slaves? Is that addressed? That would be a powerful parallel read! 2y
sammisho @MisterWhitaker it does address the sibling relationship and how Patsy felt about that. It also address Jefferson freeing his children born into slavery, but not Sally. I did not realize that Sally was Jefferson's late wife's half sister, and they strongly resembled each other. Patsy was characterized as being very sympathetic to Sally. Patsy and her father were against slavery but never spoke up publicly. Which was infuriating to read about. 2y

Finally finished this book. It was a bit long (I sped up the last few chapters to get done) and a little overly dramatic in spots, but I'm glad I listened to it. It is a fictionalized account of Martha "Patsy" Jefferson's life and what a life it was, according to this novel. Fled the British as a young girl, lost her mother at a young age, spent years in Paris, bad marriage, loyal to Virginia while hating the slavery Monticello depended on & more

Finished this 15 minutes before my book club departure and it was FANTASTIC! Authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie dove through 1,000‘s of letters written to and from Thomas Jefferson to create a fascinating fictional story through the eyes of TJ‘s oldest daughter, Patsy. What an amazing and controversial life!
I can‘t wait for their new book, My Dear Hamilton to be released in April!
