Judy and 13 other people liked Marianne's review of Let Me Die in His Footsteps:
Let Me Die in His Footsteps by Lori Roy
"“She wore her hair down this morning even though I told her it would be best if she’d bind it and cover it over. Being as it was a solemn day, I thought there would be something almost obscene about the beauty of her hair when it catches the sun...." Read more of this review »
Judy and 25 other people liked Diane S ☔'s review of Let Me Die in His Footsteps:
Let Me Die in His Footsteps by Lori Roy
"I am always drawn to these southern gothic toned novels. This has two different storylines, one in the near past and one in the present, two families, The Banes who have all boys and the Hallorans, who have all girls. Of course the novels draws fr..." Read more of this review »

Mary Todd Lincoln by Jean H. Baker
"I wanted to read a book on Mary Todd Lincoln after visiting the Lincoln home and presidential museum this summer. This book is considered the definitive biography on the former first lady, but I found it a bit dry at times. The first few chapters..." Read more of this review »

I did learn more than I knew before about Abraham Lincoln's wife but

James Meek
“The many mysteries boil down to three. There is the kind that can be solved: who planted the bomb? Will the travellers reach their destination? What is Mother's childhood secret? There is the supernatural: dark metaphysical forces, never to be fully exposed, yet hinting of themselves in a way that suggests the author could reveal more if he chose, and might do, in his next book. And there are the insoluble mysteries: what lies beyond life, what beauty is for, why the innocent suffer and the guilty prosper, what goes on in the heads of other people, why life keeps fucking us over just when we're doing all right -- these are the mysteries the books dealing with them can't solve, and it is for this reason that the best of these books are the ones we keep rereading.”
