This book is a biographical sketch of Martha Jefferson Randolph, daughter of Thomas Jefferson. Martha's story can be read as evidence that early American women, even those who resided in the southern plantation regions, could and did venture beyond their prescribed domestic roles without jeopardizing their reputations or undermining their respectability. Despite her privileged status as the daughter of Thomas Jefferson, the challenges she faced as a daughter, wife, and mother, characterized the lives of countless women of her era.
