Louisa Catherine: The Other Mrs. Adams, by Margery Heffron, vividly paints the life of the wife of the sixth US president, from his diplomatic posting in Berlin through her miscarriages, long separations from her children, daunting trip alone from Russia to Paris during Napoleon’s last days, and endurance of many hardships. It’s a wonderful read!
