Chasing Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson
Rate this book
Clear rating
FASCINATING! I learned so much from Swanson's book...Interesting facts surrounding Lincoln's assassination that I hadn't known before. The added black and white photos taken during that time period enhanced the text greatly. Such a page turner!

Clear rating
A book about truth, love, and magic that was so wonderfully strange and creative. Such a unique work of literature, with language as beautiful as poetry woven throughout the text.

This book title has been floating in and out of my life for years. It would come up in casual conversation amongst "reader" friends or at book clubs, but many who had read it or heard about it had nothing positive to say about it. Some said the inter ...more

“Henry McAllan was as landsick as any man I ever seen and I seen plenty of em, white and colored both. It's in their eyes, the way they look at the land like a woman they's itching for. White men already got her, they thinking, You mine now, just wait and see what I'm gone do to you. Colored men ain't got her and ain't never gone get her but they dreaming bout her just the same, with every push of that plow and every chop of that hoe. White or colored, none of em got sense enough to see that she the one owns them. She takes their sweat and blood and the sweat and blood of their women and children and when she done took it all she takes their bodies too, churning and churning em up till they one and the same, them and her.”
Hillary Jordan, Mudbound

“The truth isn't so simple. Death may be inevitable, but love is not. Love, you have to choose.”

“When that mama worry takes ahold of a woman you can't expect no sense from her. She'll do or say anything at all and you just better hope you ain't in her way. That's the Lord's doing right there. He made mothers to be like that on account of children need protecting and the men ain't around to do it most of the time. Helping that child be up to the mama. But God never gives us a task without giving us the means to see it through. That mama worry come straight from Him, it make it so she can't help but look after that child.”
Hillary Jordan, Mudbound

“Like the Bible said,' Gary whispered, 'man brought nothing into this world and he'll carry nothing out. Sometimes we care about stuff too much. We worry when there's nothing to worry about.”
Rebecca Skloot, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
