For John and Abigail Adams the war meant long separations,
and a correspondence that illuminates the frustrations, commitment,
generosity, intelligence and friendship of this long-married couple.
In A Distant Love, Terry Quinn, librettist, and Garry Fagin, composer,
focus on the letters exchanged between these two iconic patriots
during John’s years abroad as he worked to secure financial support
from the Dutch for a new nation. Back home, Abigail single-handedly
maintained their farm in Quincy, Massachusetts, surviving war,
deprivation, disease and heartache.
