Did unrequited love spark a flame that ignited a cause that became the American Revolution? Crafted from hundreds of letters, witness accounts, and journal entries, Mary Calvi’s debut novel explores George Washington’s relationship with New York heiress Mary Philipse. Dramatic portraits capture Washington on the precipice of greatness and his ravishing Mary, whose beauty and refinement disguise a complex inner struggle. Dear George, Dear Mary reveals how Washington’s bitter resentment of the British was established nearly two decades before the American Revolution, and unveils a deception long hidden from the world.
