Book Review: American Phoenix

I love history.  It has to be my absolute favorite genre.  And when I received "American Phoenix" by Jane Hampton Cook, I was just about drooling as I opened the package.

This book is phenomenal.  450 pages of history supported by letters and diaries.  This is not what I would call an "easy" read, but one that is captivating and propels you into that period of time so thoroughly that it's hard to remember what century you live in. 

I had absolutely no idea of the story of John Quincy Adams and his wife Louisa prior to this book.  Now I feel like an expert.

If you love history, this is a must-read.

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I was provided a free copy of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
