Washington's Lady (paperback) Nancy Moser
She dreams of a quiet life with her beloved George but war looms...
Though still a young woman. Martha Custis is a widow. But she is not without means and has no desire to remarry. Not, that is, until a striking war hero steps into her life and she realizes she is ready to love again. Yet she wonders whether this man, accustomed to courageous military exploits, can settle down to a simple life of farming and being a father to her children.
Even as she longs for domestic bliss. Nartha soon realizes she will have to risk everything dear to her and find the courage to get behind a dream much larger than her own.
