Peopled with earnest lovers, a corrupt Southern judge, a pretty young widow, her plump spinster friend, a fast-talking New York reporter, a valiant young ex-slave, and other rascals, scalawags, fools, and real historical figures, Savannah: Or a Gift for Mr. Lincoln is a tale of Southern Civil War home life as the end draws near. It is both a morality tale and a comedy of manners, with the right mix of danger, romance and humor set against the backdrop of American history. This is John Jakes at his merry best.
