“Love is said to be an involuntary passion and it is therefore contended that it cannot be resisted.”

— George Washington

Dear George, Dear Mary is a never-before-told story, hidden away for centuries, revealing that long before tea was tossed into Boston Harbor, unrequited love helped spark a flame that ignited a cause that became the American Revolution. Crafted from thousands of archived letters, witness accounts, journal entries, documents and published articles, the novel based on the true account, explores the relationship between George Washington & his first love, the richest belle of Colonial America, Mary Eliza Philipse.
