Read an Excerpt

Chronicling the lives of two of the most prominent historical figures of all time, award-winning author Russell Freedman describes the individual struggles, strengths, and mutual respect that Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass shared as they sought to promote equality within a divided nation. The book opens with a detailed description of the morning of August 10, 1863, when Frederick Douglass arrives at the White House to "lay the complaints of my people before President Lincoln" (p. 2). As he, the only black man, waits in a crowded waiting area, unsure if he will even get a turn to speak with the president, the following chapters flash back between the two men's lives to show that they both were born in poverty, both faced insurmountable struggles to get to their respective places of power, and both believed that no one had a right to own another. Throughout the book, the author weaves historical information, documented dialogue, and detailed descriptions to humanize many historical figures (i.e. Jefferson Davis, Stephen Douglas, and John Brown) made famous by the Civil War. By conducting painstaking research, Freedman provides the reader with authentic photographs and little known facts from that period that portray the devastation that slavery caused. As the book closes with Lincoln's assassination, the powerful message of Lincoln and Douglass's friendship resonates with the reader. This book would be an asset for any classroom because it shows how two men set lasting examples of equality, integrity, and selflessness. Reviewer: Courtney M. Krieger

Tommy Tenney's retelling of Hadassa/Esther and the King of Persia was fresh and alive. He held me captive until I'd finished the last page. Give yourself a gift--read this one.

This book has it all Romance, Suspense, Action,and Religion. I can hardly wait to see the movie. It is a treasure which illustrates the live of Queen Esther of the Bible. Tommy Tenney is an excellent author.
