Next up for me is Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals which was sent to me by a long-time friend I met on Ballet Talk before our daughters both became professional dancers. I've read other (smaller) books about Lincoln, but none with a focus on his "team". I'm really looking forward to it. Anyone else read this book yet?
Good to hear from you, vagansmom. I havenít, but the book has certainly been talked about in recent months. Iíd be interested to hear from any BTers reading it, as well.
I read the book quite a while ago--and in one word--Terrific! In fact, she brought Lincoln to life for me and after a year of reading most of it---my bookmark is still at the assassination---unread--he was so alive in this book I could not bear to go there again.
