it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read in January, 1994

Loved this book which is based on the couple in the box with Lincoln when he was shot - Henry Rathbone and his wife Clara. Henry is a Civil War soldier, Clara is his step sister, so plenty of controversy in their marriage without the trauma of witnessing the killing of the president. I thought this was a real tour de force. Disturbing and memorable.
