Mary Calvi spent years as a child wondering about the heiress who once lived in the grand manor in her hometown of Yonkers, NY. She’d heard in passing that the heiress was courted by George Washington. Curiosity compelled Calvi to do her own research and what she uncovered stunned even her, a New York City TV anchor, reporter, and winner of 9 New York Emmy awards. Calvi’s debut novel, DEAR GEORGE, DEAR MARY: A Novel of George Washington’s First Love is the captivating result of years of research.
Did unrequited love spark a flame that ignited a cause that became the American Revolution? Never before has this story about George Washington been told. Crafted from hundreds of letters, witness accounts, and journal entries, DEAR GEORGE, DEAR MARY explores George’s relationship with his first love, New York heiress Mary Philipse, the richest belle in Colonial America.
Stew Leonard’s will sell the book for the special price of $19.99/each.
