    In Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, novelist Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife, two of the most compelling figures in American history.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Good mix of fiction and history"
    "Fascinating history"

    Story

    This was a fascinating story and great listen. The performer did a fabulous job and the writer made Mrs. Eckley, Mrs. Lincoln and their relationship come to life. By the end, however, I found Mrs. Eckley (spelling?) a little too innocent and selfless to believe. I can't believe such a smart businesswoman would be taken for so many rides.
