Item description for Abigail and Mary: Sisters Under the Skin by Harriette S. Sherman...

Offering the same well-honed qualities that have established this writer as a firm favorite with adult readers -- insightfulness, humor, and, above all, striking honesty -- Harriette S. Sherman returns, inviting a younger audience to join her on a journey through American history that proves to be an adventure like no other.

Through the lives of two remarkable First Ladies -- Abigail Adams and Mary Todd Lincoln -- we explore some of the most pivotal years in the history of the United States of America, learning about the qualities that make this country the great nation it is today.

At the same time, we discover, through the detail of their daily lives, and, invariably, their own words, that history has left much unsaid about these two fascinating and admirable women. Far apart in years and circumstances, Abigail Adams and Mary Todd Lincoln come together through their stories as they support their husbands through happiness and adversity, and demonstrate their founding principles of loyalty, duty, and commitment, to both family and country.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Abigail and Mary: Sisters Under the Skin?

Un-boring history  Mar 1, 2003
Ms. Sherman has a way of making history come alive, and her latest book is no exception. The interview technique helps make the characters very life-like and gives the book a very contemporary feel. Even readers who usually find history a bore will be kept turning pages late into the night on this one. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about two exceptional American women.
I wish there had been more books like this when I was a kid  Feb 18, 2003
There are a few biographies on my shelves that I've had since childhood, history books intended to entertain younger readers, but not very many, and none as good as this one. When I returned home after a very long, tiring day and found that my copy of "Abigail and Mary" had arrived, I opened the package and immediately started reading. The next thing I knew, it was three in the morning and I was done with the book. This is an entertaining pair of tales that really bring Abigail Adams and Mary Todd Lincoln to vibrant life -- not just as presidential wives, but as full and fascinating people in their own right. What a wonderful way to flesh out U.S. history. Ever so much more fun than a typical history text, and really great for getting kids interested. It's particularly nice (and unusual) to read such a good work for middle-graders about *women* from this time period. I'm getting a copy for a friend of mine's daughter; I think she'll love it.
