Editorial Reviews

James M McPherson
Thanks so much for sharing the ms of your novel with me. I have read it with great pleasure, and indeed have learned a great deal from the ways in which you have dealt fictionally with an important but often misunderstood facet of Lincoln's life-and the life of Mary Todd. I am impressed by the way in which you were able to incorporate the extensive research you did into the story, which is more plausible than anything else I have read. . . . A wonderful book.

Moments ago I put down your "Abe and Molly" having read every word of it aloud to John and we both want you to know how very much we enjoyed it. There is so much to say about the book, all of it good and much of it funny. Of all the books I've read about Lincoln, yours has made him come alive so that I really feel I know him as a friend. And Molly - well, she has needed and deserved a champion for a century and a half. You have done a magnificent job.
Richard Dearborn Jr.
The strained courtship of Abraham Lincoln is brought to life by Frederic Hunter's novel Abe and Molly. Reading it is as though one is eavesdropping on the Lincolns' conversations with no guilt.
