This Month's Discussion Selection
Courting Mr. Lincoln
by Louis Bayard
When Mary Todd meets Abraham Lincoln he is on no one’s short list to be president. A country lawyer living above a dry goods shop, he is lacking both money and manners, and his gift for oratory surprises those who meet him. Mary at first finds him an enigma. Told in the alternating voices of Mary Todd and Lincoln’s roommate, Courting Mr. Lincoln creates a sympathetic and complex portrait of Mary unlike any that has come before.
