    Reviewing Abraham Lincoln

    Abraham Lincoln: a Novel Life is a fun time travel novel in which Abraham Lincoln unintentionally goes forward in time ninety years, to 1955, and meets a woman, Joan Matcham, to whom he accidentally introduces himself as Abraham Lincoln and then proceeds to explain. They spend an entire day together and fall in love.before Lincoln goes back to 1865. The novel is historically educational and brings Abraham Lincoln--and Mary Todd Lincoln--to life. In the back of the book is an engaging list of brief biographies on various historic figures who appear in the novel.
