This book reads like it was written for a nine year old girl, should have been titled "Dolly Madison, the Most Nicest Person Ever, and Other Super Swell People!" I don't think the author meant to write it like that, I think she is an amateur and apparently so was her editor. Very weak book, nothing anyone accustomed to reading good history would like. Never should have been published, unless as a children's book. And my gosh she overused the "phoenix" analogy so much it was embarrassing, ugh. Big waste of time.
Good book. If you don't have a background on the War of 1812 this book will give it to you.
Story rambles and gets lost sometimes but usually comes back to where it's supposed to be.
Narrator is okay. She tries different voices but the men all sound the same.
I would recommend this book.
