Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker

Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker
by Jennifer Chiaverini

I enjoyed listening to this historical novel. It was well written and well read also. I learned to appreciate President Lincoln and his wife and especially her dressmaker who was a very capable and caring black woman, who did so much more for the Lincolns besides simply making clothes for the first lady. -- recommended by Kathy H. - Walt Branch Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try The Union Quilters: an Elm Creek quilts novel by Jennifer Chiaverini.]

[Also available in book-on-cd and Large Print formats.]
