We travel often and have, for years, listened to Audible books on our trips. I received a tip at work that my wife would enjoy "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker" so I suggested it. We downloaded and began listening.
While this is not an "edge-of-the-seat-page-turner" it was very well written and gave great insight into one of the greatest president's we have ever had. Since I do the majority of the driving I need something that will keep my interest and keep me awake. This book did just that.
The best part? For a guy: It didn't dwell heavily on the dressmaking aspect of things!
Her inflections as well as her well thought out voicing of the characters were very good. Sometimes narrators go over the top and voice a character in a manner that seems ridiculous. Christina Moore seemed to capture most of the characters quite well.
President Abraham Lincoln...duh! LOL. Who would choose to go with any of the other characters???
This is a very thought provoking narrative. I appreciate the short addendum at the end of the book explaining what part was fictionalized in order to tell a better story, but over all it was a very true telling of actual events.
