AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER

Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie

Releasing March 1st, 2016

William Morrow

Historical Fiction 

In a compelling, richly

researched novel that draws from thousands of letters and original sources,

bestselling authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie tell the fascinating,

untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s eldest daughter, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson

Randolph—a woman who kept the secrets of our most enigmatic founding father and

shaped an American legacy.

From her earliest days, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson

knows that though her father loves his family dearly, his devotion to his

country runs deeper still. As Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter, she becomes

his helpmate in the wake of her mother’s death, traveling with him when he

becomes American minister to France. And it is in Paris, at the glittering

court and among the first tumultuous days of revolution, that she learns of her

father’s liaison with Sally Hemings, a slave girl her own age.

Patsy too has fallen in love—with her father’s

protégé, William Short, a staunch abolitionist intent on a career in Europe.

Heartbroken at having to decide between being William’s wife or a devoted

daughter, she returns to Virginia with her father and marries a man of his

choosing, raising eleven children of her own.

Yet as family secrets come to light during her

father’s presidency, Patsy must again decide how much she will sacrifice to

protect his reputation, in the process defining not just Jefferson’s political

legacy, but that of the nation he founded.
