President Lincoln is the hot topic of the moment, and author Jennifer Chiaverini provides an additional perspective--this one from the point of view of Elizabeth Keckley, a freed slave who became the talented dressmaker of First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Narrator Christina Moore gives a straightforward yet subtle performance. She presents the many historical moments like well-enunciated school lessons, while she lets the dialogue flow naturally, without straining to emulate the accents of the day. The detailed descriptions of ladies' dress during the 1860s will delight listeners who are interested in vintage fashion. Moore's understated performance allows the fascinating story to speak for itself, giving listeners an original take on this important time in history.
