Another Chapter a week!

Washington's Lady
by Nancy Moser

The Martha you never knew…

Who is this woman who captured the heart of our country's founder? While still a young woman, Martha Custis is a widow with two children. As the richest widow in Virginia she has many suitors. But one man, a striking French and Indian War hero, steps into her life and makes her realize she is ready to love again.
Yet will this man, George Washington, who is accustomed to courageous military exploits, settle down to a simple life of farming and being a father to her children? Even as Martha longs for domestic bliss, she realizes she will have to risk everything to find the courage to get behind a dream much larger than her own. United in their Glorious Cause, the love of the Washingtons deepens until he calls her "My other self."

It is said that without George Washington there would be no United States.
But without Martha there would be no George Washington.

By Marlo Schalesky

They say love is blind.
This time, they're right . . .

A poignant love story . . .
A shocking twist . . .
Come, experience a love that will not die.

A Nicolas Sparks (The Notebook) type love story meets a M. Night Shymalan (The Sixth Sense) twist in this moving story of two people trying to find love in the dark. A woman going blind, a man who loves her but can't tell her so, a car crash, a hospital room, and an ending that has to be experienced to be believed.

  1. Love the piece on Martha Washington. Abigail Adams is one of my favorite first ladies. She stuck it out with John through long absences and ran the estate on her own. In her letters to John, she addressed him as 'my dearest friend'. There is a portrait of her in her old age by Mather Brown that shows her dignity and strength.

  2. Washington's Lady sounds like a really good book! I am going to try and find it to read.
