I listened to this book after listening to a book on John Q. Adams to get more information on his wife. I found the first part of this audio book hard to listen to. The first part deals too much for me on the people in Russia and Germany, which I'm not very educated on. The second half was much more interesting becasue it dealt with Louisa and JQA. Not so much on her journey from St. Petersburg to Paris,France but it was interesting to hear her story of their marriage and their children.

I am disappointed with this book. It should have been called The Biography of Mrs. Adams. I thought it was disorganized, it kept bouncing in and out of the past, no hint of chronology. There was so much detail about stuff that had nothing to do with Mrs. Adams' trip. Every once in a while, the author would get back to the trip, I guess just to keep the thread of continuity alive. I have read other biographies, and I kept wondering why I bought this book. I had a feeling of cotton in my mouth it was so dry, and my eyes started to cross. Sorry, just my opinion. Mr. O'Brien did a fantastic reasearch job, but just didn't quite put it together correctly for this title.
