Review:

This is better than any history book you've ever read.--Curled Up with a Good Book

"Thomas Fleming is one of our most interesting scholars of the Revolutionary period, and in his insightful latest work he does not disappoint. Focusing on the wives and women of the founding fathers, Intimate Lives is thoroughly fresh, frequently fun, at times touching, and always fascinating. A significant achievement."--Jay Winik, author of The Great Upheaval and April 1865

"Tom Fleming is a rare combination - a fine historian and a fine writer. His assessment of George Washington's relationships with Sally Fairfax and Martha Custis is right on target."--Peter R. Henriques, author of REALISTIC VISIONARY: A PORTRAIT OF GEORGE WASHINGTON

"With his ample gifts as a novelist and his brilliant historical reach, the esteemed Thomas Fleming never disappoints...A remarkable achievement-- and hard to put down."--Brenda Wineapple, author of WHITE HEAT: THE FRIENDSHIP OF EMILY DICKINSON AND THOMAS WENTWORTH HIGGINSON
