Anotace:

Few events can stir up a scandal more than an autobiography of a First Lady's confidante. In 1868, a controversial tell-all called Behind the Scenes introduced readers to Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley. Mrs. Keckley was a former slave who had been Mary Todd Lincoln's dressmaker and friend during the White House years, and in the aftermath of President Lincoln's assassination. The book exposed Mary's marriage and her erratic behavior, along with confidential opinions of many in high society. The airing of the Lincoln's "dirty laundry" meant humiliation for Mary and her family, and Elizabeth's reputation was destroyed. This outcome would have been unimaginable in 1867, when Mary declared in a letter, "I consider you my best living friend." How could such a bond have developed between a woman born into slavery and the First Lady of the United States? Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker answers this question by chronicling the extraordinary lives of these women.

A fascinating account of two very different ladies

od AnchorageSchools (Publikoval uživatel WorldCat 2009-05-06) Skvělé Trvalý odkaz

This is a fascinating account of two very different ladies; Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of President Abraham Lincoln, and her dressmaker, Elizabeth Keckley, a former slave.  Early chapters alternate with the biographies of each woman as they grew up, with later chapters devoted to their adult years...
