The marriage of the second President and First Lady of the United States has been touted as an extraordinary representation of the Revolutionary era in which they lived. In this first dual biography of America’s original ‘power couple, ABIGAIL AND JOHN, Dr. Gelles caps 30 years of research with a captivating portrait of their lives together, a narrative that is distinguished particularly because it places equal emphasis on what Abigail brought to their union.
Dr. Edith Gelles began her research into the Adams’ life and marriage over thirty years ago and is the author of two books about Abigail for the academic market: Portia: The World of Abigail Adams, a co-winner of the American Historical Association’s Herbert Feis Award, and Abigail Adams: A Writing Life, an examination of Abigail’s life through her letters. She taught at Stanford and lives in Palo Alto.
