    interesting

    I enjoyed the book. It made a lot of sense and I guess shouldn't be surprising that the women were so involved. Women have kind of held the raines on most important matters.

    What surprised me was I e-mailed a friend of mine who does re-inactments of the Civil War. I told him about the one that actually let Lincoln win the war. Talk about a hornets nest. He made it clear that Lincoln read a lot of books and that's why he won.

    I didn't want to add fuel to the fire so I let it go but wanted to say " it would have been nice if he'd have read them sooner and saved a lot of lives on the battlefield."

    I e-mailed my sister in Texas after I watched a Lincoln special and it said he read a book and ended the war. Her response was "this isn't the place to argue about it" (she was at work). I didn't want to argue about any of it. I was just saying it made more sense to have a spy then to suddenly read a magic book. Be careful what you say about the book, the war is still hitting a nerve in people you may not have realized!
