My Name Was Mary by Gayle Rogers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Abraham Lincoln fell deeply in love with Mary Todd, and as he was quoted as saying many times -- he never fell out. She was of a wealthy family and was scorned by all of her wealthy sisters for marrying a poor man, deeply in debt with no prospects, as had the wealthy suitors who courted her. Separated by Lincoln's fear of giving her a life of hardship she could not bear, their love would not allow them to remain apart. Lincoln is certainly a deeply revered part of the American experience and bore the vicious attacks on his wife with great pain. Hated in the South for being the wife of Abraham Lincoln, hated by many in the North for being a Southerner, she is one of the most maligned persons in American history. Lincoln's exalted status makes the vicious attacks on him irrelevant, but, unlike her husband, Mary became temporarily crushed under more grief than she could bear. Without her story you do not know Abraham Lincoln for the man he was, tender lover, husband and father, a human man who forgot to bank the coals for the morning fire, forgot to come home at the proper time for meals, who usually read with his feet on a table or lying on the floor with his feet up on a chair, a man who spoiled their four sons by denying them nothing, and always, always cherishing the woman who stole his heart away. Love is eternal he had written in her wedding ring, and for them it is. Let her speak for herself, honestly. It is about time.
