Really enjoyed the first half of this book. Phyllis is a great independent free spirited young lady and her mother even more so. Nicholson has no hesitation in creating strong women and I like that but the last half just had too much business dealings with bonds receivership, etc. understandable with him being a politician business man, just I find it takes about from the story of Phyllis. I say read the first half.
It didn't move me emotionally like I thought it would. I wonder if I had just read the French version, if I could, there would have been more meaning.
Cute story of seven men in pursuit of the same woman.
I am very grateful for this accurate account of what happened to Mrs. Lincoln showing real letters between her and E. Keckley. E. Keckley wrote a very feeling opening and closing to this book.
