A National Book Award FinalistLike her brother, Jane Franklin was a passionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd political commentator. Unlike him, she was a mother of twelve. Making use of an amazing cache of little-studied material, Jill Lepore brings Jane Franklin to life in a way that illuminates not only this one woman but an entire world -- a world usually lost to history. Jane's is one of the great untold stories of American history and letters: a life unknown.
