Thomas Jefferson's personal life has always been a puzzle to biographers. Even his contemporaries found him difficult to know.

This penetrating and thoughtful portait confronts widespread misunderstandings about Jefferson's romantic life and provides insight into the contradictions that still surround our third president.
