really liked it

I have read great literature about Lee Harvey Oswald (Libra) and James Earl Ray (Like a fading shadow) so it seems the way I read about American History is through reading historical novels about the great assassinations.

This is clearly much now than that though. This is the story of the family of John Wilkes Booth more than him and I had no idea they were so famous and so interesting.

Really enjoyed this. Very readable, very interesting and also had lots in it (both divisive politics and general family relationships) that struck a chord with society today.
