Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Turners draw on about half of the 610 extant letters written by Mary Todd Lincoln and present a comprehensive portrait of Lincoln's bitterly unhappy wife. PW stated that "a unique self-portrait emerges, fleshed out and illuminated by the well-written narrative supplied by the editors."

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Richard Lawrence Miller, Lincoln author on August 23, 2007
Format: Paperback
The correspondence of Mary Todd Lincoln reveals much about her personalty, and also demonstrates her memory's occasional fallibility. Includes letters dating from the 1840s and into her widowhood. Rewarding for the specialist. A general reader will probably want to dip into the book occasionally rather than read long sections at a time.

This book is an excellent resource of historical information on Mary Lincoln, her life. I am a Mary Lincoln presenter, and I find that this book is an excellent historical account of her life through her letters.

Great book for discovering who Mary Todd Lincoln really was. Doing research over four years and this was one of the most helpful of all my books.
