David Weitzman has written the only first-person account of the life and revolutionary times of Gilbert du Motier-better known as the Marquis de Lafayette. Weitzman faithfully renders the color and spirit of revolutionary times in this historically accurate account of the events and relationships the young nobleman entered and formed on his path to become a well-respected fighting commander and right-hand man to General George Washington, who regarded this special French ally 'Like my own son.' "Living a Life That Matters" is the product of careful scholarship and equally careful construction by the articulate and witty Weitzman. No one who professes feelings for the beginnings of this country will want to miss the opening scenes of the American experiment in this compelling page-turner of a novel.
