Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule
- By: Jennifer Chiaverini
- Narrated by: Christina Moore
- Length: 15 hrs and 57 mins
In 1844, Missouri belle Julia Dent met dazzling horseman Lieutenant Ulysses S Grant. Four years passed before their parents permitted them to wed, and the groom's abolitionist family refused to attend the ceremony. Since childhood, Julia owned as a slave another Julia, known as Jule. Jule guarded her mistress' closely held twin secrets: She had perilously poor vision but was gifted with prophetic sight. So it was that Jule became Julia's eyes to the world.

I enjoyed the book very much & loved the history of the Civil War. My only complaint is that the narrator mispronounced the city of Cairo in Illinois. It was annoying.
