Summer 2022 Book Recommendation Series: 2nd Pick From Our Book Buyer!
Mount Vernon’s very own book buyer is recommending several books for summer reading; the second recommendation is this title from the bestselling author of The Storm Before the Storm and host of the Revolutions podcast. Hero of Two Worlds is the thrilling story of the Marquis de Lafayette’s lifelong quest to defend the principles of liberty and equality.
Our book buyer explains her recommendation: "Leave it a fabulous podcaster on Revolutions to tell the story of the Lafayette in a new and revolutionary way. Mike Duncan’s skill as a story-teller brings the Marquis to life as a runaway teenager, national hero and prisoner in a dungeon all while becoming the international symbol of liberty in the Age of Enlightenment. A truly enjoyable read!"
A Mount Vernon bookplate, signed by the author, is included with your purchase of this FIRST EDITION.
