Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2020
While the subject matter itself is interesting, the writing style of the author made this a somewhat painful slog about the final years of George Washington's life. Add to that that the author meanders from the main subject on a regular basis and you have a book that could have been much more intersesting. In addition, the frequent use (or overuse) of qoutes gives the book a feel that this was needed in order to have a substantial narrative on the subject.
I would only recommend this book if you are a fan of George Washington and are willing to plow through several parts of the book that border on painful.
I received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon and my nonfiction book review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook page.
