So you REALLY know Ben Franklin? Wife Debby thinks otherwise! Mrs. Franklin was more than capable founding mother -- businesswoman, postmistress, mother of three, civic-minded citizen, and wife. With the help of a debt-ridden medium and the least of her descendants, she gets to tell her story. An honest, funny, and warm historical retelling from a colonial woman not afraid to speak her mind.
