Boy did I goof. I know that Sarah Bush was Abe’s Step-Mother, and Nancy Hank was his birth mother. Hence, my post below is completely incorrect; although Abe did love his mother very much (and his step-mother) and I think I am going to read this book regardless. It is fairly small so although it smells like old books tend to, it should be a quick read. I apologize for my inaccurate information!
This book is about Mr. Lincoln and the relationship he had with his Step-Mother, whom he grew to love very dearly. He had a difficult time when his Mother passed away.
I bought this book several years ago off Ebay, along with a smaller book about Abraham Lincoln and his Step-Mother. I really never had any intention of reading either, as I just purchased them to put with all the rest of my Abraham Lincoln things I have collected over the years.
With all the big names that contributed, I think I may indeed end up reading this!
I had to share this link from viralnova.com on what you may find on the edges of your old books. This is kind of driving me nuts right now because I know I had books where each edge of the page was printed just a teeny-tiny bit around the edge of each page. I have a sneaking suspicion this is what I had in my hands.
Now I am debating if I want to go in my basement and start digging through boxes and bookshelves full of my books.
