about this book

An impeccably researched historical novel, Jefferson offers a glimpse behind the face this complex Virginian showed the world. The novel is set in 1780s Paris during Jefferson's ambassadorship to France. Through the eyes of narrator William Short (Jefferson's young secretary and prot        g        ) students can peer into the long private and public life of the future third president of the United States.
