At the center of this historical novel by talented novelist Jennifer Chiaverini (The Union Quilters; The Spymistress) is the singular friendship between eccentric, Southern born president's wife Mary Todd Lincoln and her dressmaker, former slave Elizabeth Keckley. As strange as it seems, this unlikely closeness strengthened during the Civil War years, even gaining resilience in the aftermath of one Lincoln son's demise and the death of the president himself. Then years later, a well-intentioned act of independence by the former confidante destroyed Keckley's bond with the president's widow. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
