Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin

Benjamin Franklin, who wrote more letters to his sister than he wrote to anyone else, was the original American self-made man; his sister spent her life caring for her children. And yet, like Benjamin, Jane was a passionate reader, a gifted writer, and an astonishingly shrewd political commentator. They left very different traces behind. Jill Lepore brings Jane Franklin to life in a way that illuminates not only this one woman but an entire world — a world usually lost to history.

Making use of an astonishing cache of little-studied material, including documents, objects, and portraits only just discovered, this revelatory biography sheds new light on this little known woman and the world in which she lived.
