FIRST FAMILY George Washington's Heirs and the Making of America

by | Read by Courtney Patterson

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Courtney Patterson's expressive narration admirably serves this account of Martha Washington's children from her first marriage and their impact on the United States. Good's account shows George stepping up as a father figure and presents Martha's children as heirs to his legacy. However, they were also quite often its prisoners. Celebrity comes with a price, and the descendants of Martha and George were definitely in the limelight. Patterson's voice and presentation are an excellent match to the text. Her pronunciation is clear and easy to understand, her pacing is near perfect, and her intonation captures the text well. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
