Review:
For all you history lovers out there this is the book for you. I love history and I love the secrets our founding fathers kept from the world. The authors did an amazing job of putting together a story that once told is both amazing and incredible.

Can you imagine being the eldest daughter to one of the most powerful and influential men of our time. I could not and as I started reading this story I was blown away by the things that happened to both Patsy and her father. I mean talk about scandal holy hell this is one of those scandals that stays with you long after you are done reading.

What struck me the most was the devotion Patsy had to her father and her family. She would do anything to protect her family. Patsy was a courageous woman of her time because she loved and she loved hard and some of her decisions were made with a heavy heart but she would stop at nothing to protect her father and her family.

This is a must read book. I mean you start reading and you can't put it down it is so amazing!

 About AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER: 
In a compelling, richly researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources, bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating, untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s eldest daughter, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph—a woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and shaped an American legacy. From her earliest days, Patsy Jefferson knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter, she becomes his helpmate, protector, and constant companion in the wake of her mother’s death, traveling with him when he becomes American minister to France. It is in Paris, at the glittering court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that fifteen-year-old Patsy learns about her father’s troubling liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age. Meanwhile, Patsy has fallen in love—with her father’s protégé William Short, a staunch abolitionist and ambitious diplomat. Torn between love, principles, and the bonds of family, Patsy questions whether she can choose a life as William’s wife and still be a devoted daughter. Her choice will follow her in the years to come, to Virginia farmland, Monticello, and even the White House. And as scandal, tragedy, and poverty threaten her family, Patsy must decide how much she will sacrifice to protect her father's reputation, in the process defining not just his political legacy, but that of the nation he founded.
