Author Catherine Allgor
Before Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy and Hilary Clinton --there was Dolley Madison! Award-winning historian, Catherine Allgor gives a portrait of the charismatic First Lady, known as the Queen Mother of Washington. Madison used her gifts for hospitality and diplomacy to build bridges between back-stabbing rivals during her husband?s presidency and helped unify the government for a fledgling nation.
