She was on her way to join up with her husband John Quincy Adams who was the ambassador to Russia. O"Brien uses this journey to expound on a wondrous range of topics, and he brings to this account his own acute intelligence as well as references in Louisa Adams's own writings, which she entitled, "The Adventures of a Nobody." This is as much a travelogue, history and geography of Eastern Europe as it is a portrait of a woman who felt she did not fit in, and whose ideas of the value of women were ahead of their time. ...show less
