Interesting book, one that I'd love to read. I have always loved Civil War and Lincoln era novels and I'm so. racism and discrimination during the Civil War era. Pomeroy denied being a racist, yet hated that the end of slavery would affect. . Glad to hear that it was cleverly written, too. Great review! I love historical fiction and being that I have not read. appreciate the review of the book. I always thought Lincoln was everyone's favorite, how wrong I was. I will love to read. this one. Thanks for a good review I. on Lincoln and the American Civil War period. Pomeroy, the main character in the story seems interesting to read about. Nice review. I.
