My only complaint is the shortness of the book, and the limited text given to certain events, like Willie Lincoln's death. Here was a woman who was intimate with the Lincolns during one of the most historical eras in the country's history, who died two years after writing this book (in 1933). I am sure she could have filled a book five times this size with her recollections, but now they are lost forever. Even the accounts of the other historical people she encountered because of her closeness to the Lincolns, which she speaks of briefly, could fill a volume all by itself.
If you enjoy your history personalized, or if you're a fan of Lincoln, this book is a must read. If I could give it more than five stars, I would.
book. I have recounted some of its anecdotes in our production, ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S LOVE OF SONG..
.This book has all the charm of such stories as Little House on the Prairie and Little Women...Love it!
Overall, I found this to be a fascinating look at the White House during the Civil War. Not, the generals and the political leaders, but the Lincoln children and their warm and doting parents. It truly is a side of Lincoln that I have never really seen before.
If you are interested in Abraham Lincoln the man, then this really is a book you need to see. It is a unique window into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln.

I really enjoyed this book but that could be because I'm such a Lincoln - fanatic. If you're looking for historical information there really isn't any to speak of in this book. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Kay
