Much of what we know about Thomas Jefferson is what his daughter Patsy Jefferson allowed us to know. Find out why that is when New York Times bestselling author Laura Kamoie discusses the history behind and writing of her novel, America’s First Daughter, about the contributions, sins, and sacrifices of the eldest daughter of our nation’s third president.
