The Lincolns: Portrait of a Marriage
Detailed and engrossing narrative about the relationship of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. However, I do wish their personal sagas had been more strongly juxtaposed against the events of the war (for example, we hear almost nothing about personal or familial influence upon the declaration of civil war, the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, etc.) Also, there is almost nothing about Lincoln's family and background while there is a surfeit of material about the Todds.
