A Great Read






Hello Everyone!

Hope you had a super 
weekend.


During Spring break I 

hit the library. As I was 
browsing the shelves, I 
ran into a book that I 
had been wanting to 
read since it debuted.

Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker

is the story about Elizabeth 
Keckley who was born into 
slavery. When she was older
she was able to buy her free-
dom and her son's.
Skilled with a needle and 
thread she created stunning 
dresses and gowns for the 
elite in Washington City or 
as we know DC.
Through her sewing, she 
became friends with Mrs.
Lincoln and as time went by 
they became devoted friends.
The story line covers many 
historical events in the Lincoln
family and Presidency.

If you enjoy Historical Fiction,

this is a MUST READ. Ms.
Chiaverini has done an
awesome job with this 
story, it is a well researched
novel. I found out more about
Mary Todd Lincoln than I ever
remember from history class.
Now I want to find out more 
about Elizabeth Keckley!

Check it out!!!

  5. This is on my to-read list. You are so right. I'm going to put in a reserve at the library. It would be perfect to read on my zillion hour flights to Japan.
