It took me a really, really long time to get through all 34 hours of this. I found it a bit lacking in the department of describing Madison’s early life (maybe there just wasn’t more to say? I really don’t know…) Anyway, it made up for that lack by going into almost excruciating detail about the rest of his life. It wasn’t the most engaging read at times, but I don’t regret it. I didn’t realise that it was Madison who was such a big proponent of making religious liberty a priority in the new nation, nor how much he was involved in the creation of the Constitution.
Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.
