Stephanie Thornton is another go-to author for me. Her books are rich in detail showing her passion for the story and the enormous amount of research involved.
I knew nothing about Alice Roosevelt and this book showed her to be a woman ahead of her time. Spanning her life she was a force to be reckoned with, she did things her way whether they made sense or not. I loved her spunky attitude, fierce loyalty, and determination with no qualms about taking a stand. But if you got on her bad side, she didn’t keep that a secret either.
Alice is only 17 when introduced here with the author drawing from historical events and actual documentation. American Princess is a fascinating story of the life of Alice Roosevelt, her crazy escapades both at home and abroad made for an entertaining read. Definitely a book and author I highly recommend.
