A nice addition to any library full of history.

     Betsy Ross - who knew she had 8 sisters and 1 brother? That is probably true, but the rest of this revisionist fictionalized "biography" may not be because the author doesn't cite any sources. As a story it is passable, but as a biography it is marginal.
