This book casts a wide net over sources to challenge an old idea with startling new insights. After years of research the author has discovered more information about Lincoln's first love, Ann Rutledge, than has previously been known. Winkler's work, combined with earlier studies by Douglas Wilson and John Simon, establishes beyond a shadow of a doubt the Lincoln-Rutledge romance and engagement. Also, Winkler's extensive material on the other women in Lincoln's life illuminates what had previously been puzzling to many scholars. The book is well-written, highly provocative, and intriguing and thought-provoking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
