Thomas Jefferson: An Intimate History
Here for the first time we meet Jefferson as a man of feeling and passion. With a novelist's skill and meticulous scholarship, Fawn M. Brodie shows Jefferson as he wrestled with issues of revolution, religion, power, race, and love-ambivalences that exerted a subtle but powerful influence on his political writing and his decision making. The portrait that results adds a whole new depth to those of the past.

Review: Thomas Jefferson: An Intimate HistoryUser Review - Alex - Goodreads
Personal history that focuses on Jefferson and his private life rather than his political career. Good background and discussion on his relationship with Sally Hemings. Probably best for those who have read a few other biographies on Jefferson and want to know more about Jefferson as a person. Read full review
