This was a beautifully written book that stayed with me even when it was closed and my mind was supposed to be elsewhere. It is good historical fiction, intertwining fact with fiction. The problem for me was that just about anything fictional about a person like Abraham Lincoln seems... I don't know, on par with the story of George Washington and the cherry tree (which is actually mentioned in the pages of this book). I believe that if this were about someone else, if this book were to be called JOE, for instance, I'd have had no qualms because it was VERY good. It was only my personal taste that got in the way.
