I AM ABRAHAM A Novel of Lincoln and the Civil War

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Historical Fiction • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

This historical novel may challenge the listener's notions of Lincoln as the somber, wise statesman. Written entirely from a first-person perspective, the audiobook relies heavily on Arthur Morey's interpretation of the imaginative narrative. Even in his early days as a traveling Illinois lawyer with designs on the prettiest belle in Kentucky, Morey's Lincoln is both crass and witty. Morey's steadfast pace throughout the almost lyrical account of Lincoln's presidential campaign provides a sense of Lincoln's mule-like commitment to integrity. Especially touching is the undercurrent of cynicism and melancholy that Lincoln tries to overcome, particularly during the Civil War years. Morey allows us to glimpse the Lincoln family's horrifying mental illnesses without pity, as we imagine the president himself would have done.
