Louisa Catherine: The Other Mrs. Adams By Margery M. Heffron

“Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams, wife and political partner of John Quincy Adams, became one of the most famous women in the United States when her husband assumed office as the sixth president in 1825. Shrewd, intellectual, and articulate, she was close to the center of U.S. power over many decades, and extensive archives reveal her as an unparalleled observer of the politics, personalities, and issues of her day. Louisa left behind a trove of journals, essays, letters, and other writings, yet no biographer has mined these riches until now. Margery M. Heffron brings Louisa out of the shadows to offer the first full and nuanced portrait of an extraordinary first lady. Louisa’s sharp insights as a tireless recorder provide a fresh view of early American democratic society, presidential politics and elections, and — indeed — every important political and social issue of her time.”
