    1. A fascinating read about Mary Todd Lincoln. I'm sure next to no one knows that after the assasination of President Lincoln, Robert, MTL's only remaining son (3 of her 4 sons died of illness) put her on trial for insanity and had her committed. At the time, some people were proposing that the insane be treated humanely (what a concept!) so her confinement was at a home for ladies of a higher class and she was taken care of by the doctor who ran the place and his family. (She was also allowed to h [...]


    2. Any woman, no matter how stable, would be pushed to the brink if they'd lost three of their four children and had seen their husband killed before their eyes. Mary was insecure and had neuroses that were severe, so can it be surprising in the least that she suffered depression and anxiety? This book demonstrates that she was not insane, but in need of help and understanding, something her eldest son was unwilling/unable to provide.


    3. This is a mediocre book about an interesting topic. How many people know that Abraham Lincoln's son took his own mother to court to have her declared insane?! And yet, given the sensational subject matter, the book just doesn't quite hit the mark. A novel on this topic came out last year, and to be honest, that's what I thought I was buying. The novel is supposed to be good; hopefully one of these days I will stumble across it for real.


    4. The book was written well, well researched, and contained material which adds to the public fascination of the Lincoln family.
