[I'm trying out the new updates now instead of a master post. We'll see if I end up staying with these updates.]
I first learned about Kate Chase Sprague when I read "Team of Rivals" by Doris Kearns Goodwin. I didn't like her that much after reading about her in that book but I was interested in her relationship with Mrs. Lincoln. So when I saw this book I knew it would be an interesting read. I've enjoyed reading about the events from Kate's perspective and I look forward to reading more.
