Wonderful book--the writing, the scholarship, the design, and even the physical book itself. Here we meet the Lincolns in many ways, some familiar, some unexpected (which is amazing considering the vast number of books about the Lincolns). Candace Fleming writes with a confident, personal voice that reveals the Lincolns and their world. The research is sound, obviously based on primary sources, but she presents the information with the excitement of a storyteller. Read this book!

Excellent title. I could pour over the pages for hours.

I am big on organization and I found the information hard to take in the way it is presented. I would love to browse this title, but not to read it cover to cover.
