Julia LivshinThe author of an eight-book mystery series set in 1830s New Orleans, Hambly does panoramic history very well. In The Emancipator's Wife, she summons the languorous gentility of the antebellum South as persuasively as she does the clamor, filth and meat-packing stench of post-Civil War Chicago. And she manages to capture, with a light hand, the elusive bond between "Molly" and Mr. Lincoln that endured the snowballing hardships of their lives.
