For over a century she has stood in the shadow of her famous husband. Now she steps into the light. Mary Custis Lee was a woman of contrasts-a woman with a will of iron whose faith in God sustained her through years of separation from her husband, the deaths of two children, and the heartbreaking transforamtion of her magnificent estate into a military cemetery. Based on previously unpublished private journals and letters spanning half a century, this is the story of an articulate, passionate, and selfless patriot worthy of her heritage as the great-granddaughter of Martha Washington and consort to one of the most revered military leaders in American history.
