We can’t seem to get enough of Ben Franklin – the thrifty inventor-statesman of the revolutionary era with remarkable achievements in publishing, business, politics, diplomacy and invention. A man so confident in his own immortality that he tempted lighting to strike the same place twice. We know all about the key and the kite, the post offices, the libraries, the bifocals, the fire departments, and the almanacs. But what about the woman who raised his children, ran his businesses, built their house and fought off angry mobs at gunpoint while he traipsed about England? Author Nancy Rubin Stuart is an award-winning author and journalist whose eight nonfiction books focus upon women and social history.
