I wanted to like it even more since I like Lincoln so much. However, the reading is pretty dry in spots with just historical facts. I imagine Trump did his best with the pieces he was able to pull together or find about Grace Bedell Billings's life. There is some good research but there were some pretty big holes in her life story. Still a good read and valuable information about the girl who "changed the face of America" and some history about many of her contemporaries.
