I just finished Jennifer Chiaverini’s latest book, Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker.
This is one of her better books. I give it a good review.
I was wondering how much was true and how much was fiction, Jennifer stayed with the facts, embellishing only to make an interesting story. I located this biography of Elizabeth which I found interesting to back up the facts.
If you would like to read the book that is mentioned in the story, I found it free for the Kindle on Amazon.
The recent movie on Lincoln showed Elizabeth Keckly in the box at Ford’s theater when President Lincoln was shot. She was not there, I found no references to indicate that she was present. Jennifer Chiaverini’s version is more likely.
