Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jennifer Chiaverini

Narrated By: Christina Moore

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: January 2013

Duration: 14 hours 2 minutes

Summary:

New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Chiaverini has a gift for transporting listeners into the past for riveting explorations of how seemingly ordinary women overcome extraordinary circumstances. In this departure from her beloved Elm Creek Quilts series, Chiaverini weaves a historical fiction tale profiling the life of Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley, a former slave who would become a dressmaker for Mary Todd Lincoln. A character largely forgotten to history, Keckley blossoms under Chiaverini's masterful writing.

Genres:

    An inside glimpse into the White House during Lincoln's administration. A compelling story of trials and tribulations of the first Families during the most difficult times in our history. An eye opener. History presented from a "colored" woman's perspective who was not only Mrs.Lincoln's dress maker, but a woman who sincerely cared for Mrs. Lincoln and was regarded as a friend. Fine reading, indeed.

    This is a excellent history lesson. This book brings life into history's most turbulent time and this book should be part of teaching American history.
