Her Time

Largely ignored and often not treated kindly by history, Deborah Read Franklin wants very much to tell you her typically neglected life story in Philadelphia during Colonial times. For many years at a stretch, she was often without her husband who was performing work for the soon emerging nation. An honest, funny and warm historical retelling by a very capable founding mother not afraid to speak her mind at any given moment.
