Once started, I couldn't stop reading this exciting account of Miss Cunningham's work to save our country's most sacred & historic home; much of which occurred while the Civil War was wrecking the economy and the lives of all Americans. Her Christian faith no doubt kept her going when her failing health gravely impair her. I felt like I was there with her in this personalized look at all her trials & tribulations. Women of that time were held back in so many venues but she persevered in a man's world to be heard & to get help for Mount Vernon & the Americans of the future in spite of the political obstacles faced even as we have today. It was quite inspiring to read & certainly gives me a new appreciation of those who worked to help her.
