Mrs. Lincoln: A Life

Hardcover: 432 pages
Publisher: Harper

With the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, this is a timely book about the life of his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln.

Because of her questionable mental health, this extraordinary woman has always been misunderstood. This is one of the most comprehensive books about Mrs. Lincoln I have ever read.

If you think you’ve read everything there is to know about the 16th First Lady, you will be engrossed with the new information provided in this wonderful book.
