DEAR MR. PRESIDENT Abraham Lincoln: Letters from a Slave Girl

by | Read by George Guidall, Tom Stechshulte, Sisi Johnson

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Lettie Tucker is a literate slave living on a Charleston plantation. When she sends a letter to Abraham Lincoln, the correspondence is enlightening for both. Listeners glimpse the struggles of two different people in the same war-torn nation. As Lincoln experiences the political and personal tug-of-war over slavery, Lettie eloquently argues that preservation of the Union without abolition of slavery is not acceptable. Tom Stechshulte paces his deep voice to reflect a caring and deliberately thoughtful man, wearied by the war. Sisi Johnson has the right blend of bite and sweetness to incite both smiles and sorrow. If the quality of both voices is indicative of this whole series, expect top-notch audiobooks from Live Oak Histories.
