Описание

In 1794, Johnny Watkins returns to America from Barbados, intent on becoming a great statesman. Even his hero, John Adams, believes the gifted boy will go far. There's just one catch: Johnny must learn to pass for white. He finds a spirited and lovely confidante in Kate, one of the few who knows that Johnny's father had been born a slave. But as he moves closer toward the new city of Washington, Johnny leaves Kate behind, falling instead for a prominent Maryland heiress who may not have his best interests at heart. Embroiled in the vicious politics of the approaching election, Johnny lives every moment at risk of being unmasked. Then, a discovery about Thomas Jefferson, one that could sway the election, imperils not only Johnny's future but also his life. In the end, Johnny learns who his real friends are-and the truth behind the great promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    This was the third and final book in The Midwife Series. This book was not about the midwives as the two previous, and I was disappointed. This book was about one of the midwife's son, Johnny, whose father was an escaped slave and his mother a midwife. Johnny was born and raised in Barbados and only came to the U.S. when he won a scholarship at Harvard. Johnny passed for white and he and his mother returned to the house of her mother's sister, who were neighbors of John and Abigail Adams. Adams takes Johnny to DC and they both become embroiled in the Adams vs. Jefferson controversy. I can tell you, there is nothing new in politics today that did not take place during the founding of our country. 432 pages
