History has not always been kind to Mary Custis Lee, and the author sets about changing that perception. She is portrayed as a fascinating and inspiring woman: a painter, patriot, authors, hostess, devout Christian, mother of seven, and loving wife. Lee's life is ultimately viewed as a timeless example of triumph in the face of desolation and loss.
