It has been said that without George Washington, there would be no United States. But without Martha, there would be no George Washington. He called her "my other self." Who was this woman who captured the heart of our country's founder? Martha DandridgeCurtis was a wealthy, attractive widow and the mother of two small children when she was courted by, then married to the French and Indian War hero. Her new life as Martha Washington took her through blissful times at Mount Vernon, family tragedies, six years of her husband's absence during the Revolutionary War, and her position as a reluctant First Lady.

Washington's Lady  May 10, 2010
I throughly enjoyed Washington's Lady. I always wondered about Martha Washington and this book told me so much about her. Nancy Moser did her research, because I am now reading the book "The Real George Washington subtitle The True Story of America's Most Indispensable Man". And Ms Moser's knowledge of all that Washington went through is right on the mark. Ms. Moser brought both Martha and George Washingotn to life in this book. She showed their deep love for each other, their willingness to deal with all the problems they faced with making this the great nation it is. I am now looking forward to reading all of her books about women of history.
A lady by the name of Washington  Dec 30, 2009
"I have come to the conclusion any biography of George Washington would not be complete absent the inclusion of his wife Martha. Her steadfast support, and unwavering faith in a cause of freedom greater than just the two of them, enabled him to become the truly extraordinary man we know him as today.
This was a woman who managed the greatest estate in Virginia, if not the whole of the colonies, at a time when women were given credit for little more than managing the home and raising the children. She organized her other founding mothers, rendering invaluable aid to George's men with clothing, medical attention, food and especially the sincere listening ear to those far from their homes and own loved ones. Though the title was never to her liking, the name these men called her by applied well to the mother of our country. She was indeed Lady Washington. Read her story and learn what she and George endured to carry freedom to our own day."
Written Like a Memoir, Reads Like a Novel  Sep 10, 2009
Nancy Moser's book,"Washington's Lady," is an extended first person account of the first first lady of the United States, Martha Washington, nee Dandridge, Custis from the time of her first husband's death, ca 1757, through her marriage to George Washignton and finally her own death in 1802. It is the story of the beginnings of the United States, its revolutionary war, constitutional foundation, and the first stumbling steps of the new nation. It is also has to be the story of the great loves of an 18th century couple and the perilous conditions in the English Colonies in America.

"Washington's Lady" as one might expect is primarily a tale of the new republic told from the point of view of the wealthiest of its settlers, albeit those of great compassion and humanity not unlike some 20th century families, e.g., the Roosevelts and the Kennedys. This novel also invites us into a view of the plight of men and women, primarily women, and the enormous mortality statistics of the age, babies, children, and adults, dead of disease, epidemics, malnutrition, and wars with indigenous peoples as well as European nations. We see, too, the cruelty toward the colonists and their subjugation by their own fellows and families in Britain to an extent not often revealed. Author Moser's thorough knowledge of period and place in this 17th century story is awesome.

Written in first person, the novel feels like a memoir, a personal tale that unfailingly identifies the players and reveals intimate details of their lives up to and including the president and first lady in their bed chamber. Moser's use of language is further proof of her skills, evidenced by her surprising turns of phrase, eg., "..(he) oozed bitterness the way a wound oozes the poison that inflames it"; "Sally placed her hands in her lap letting them find company one with the other"; "I bypassed the desk and went to him, finding a place in his lap"; "My mind could not comprehend and so left me, as though it had business elsewhere ...".

In my opinion, author Moser is also to be congratulated for her courage in risking so famous a couple as subject for her book -- if only because her readers know so much about them; any errors in fact that she might make are too easily discovered. It's a greater pleasure then to recommend a book that is both accurate for the facts of a famous couple and convincing for its clever and inventive use of language. Brava! Nancy Moser!
Passionate, Strong, and Touching  Jun 13, 2009
Nancy Moser does it again. Washington's Lady is an absolute masterpiece. And a fine tribute to the lady who stood alongside Americas first president, our reluctant and yet dutiful hero. All those who know me know how much I adore this time of American History and this book lives up to my passion for it. Admittedly I do not know as much about George Washington and Martha as I would like, as I am a Jefferson girl (can you guess) But is books like this that make me crave to learn more about him and his Martha.

In this book we follow Martha's story we meet her at the time of the death of her first husband and how she will move forward from there. Married only 7 years to that first husband, she was left the wealthiest widow in Virginia. She rejects many suitors, as she hasn't found one who can capture her heart or inkling like that. Enter Colonel George Washington. Their match truly was a love match, and Martha stayed beside George through it all.

There were times when Martha did not wish the path that George took, but she was still by his side. She may have disagreed with her old man but she always supported him. The book does make a point at the very end to say that many say without George Washington we would not have America, which is very true. And the book than goes onto say, Without Martha Washington there would be no George. And this comment is also true. Behind every great man is a great woman. This book has taken place as the best book that I have read this year. I highly encourage anyone and everyone to pick it up, and read it.
Book Enticed Desire to Read More History  Feb 23, 2009
My Mom read this book and she told me I needed to read it. So, she had been bothering me for quite some time to read it therefore it sat on the top of my closet for a few weeks...Sorry Mom! In addition, I am not a lover of romance novels and for some reason this book looked like a boring case of "Why Me?" "whininess" over a lost lover wrapped in a dry history lesson. However, I was wrong in all of my "judging a book by its cover" mentality rather, this book became MY romance as Martha Washington was so beautifully unfolded in my mind. Also, I had a whole new appreciation for George Washington and the struggles he endured. In the end, I truly enjoyed this book and I AM NOT giving it back to my Mom:)
