2016 Historical Fiction Finalist Next Generation Indie Book Awards and named a 2016 Literati by Landmark Center A far cry from the powdered-haired general or president discussed in most Washington biographies, Becoming George Washington reveals young Washington as an action hero at the epicenter of the French & Indian War.

At the same time, the book explores George's complex relationships with his difficult mother and caring brothers. Notably, the novel contains an affair between George and Sally Fairfax. While highly controversial, the liaison is supported by documentation, including letters written by George. Becoming George Washington includes detailed author's notes providing sources and commentary on events so the reader may know and understand the real story.
