    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBWhat an excellent subject for a book but the execution was too dry too much telling not enough dialogue and direct character interaction and too much listing off of Civil War events and leaders I wanted to get into the internal thoughts and motivations of Elizabeth and Mrs Lincoln but it felt like reading a textbook than a novel I felt kept at a distance from the primary focus of the book Not bad but not my favorite

    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBDisclaimer This review is based on an ARC edition of the novel I received from NetGalleyHaving never read Chiaverini before I was free of most expectations but one I thought the story was going to be about Mrs Lincoln's dressmaker Elizabeth Keckley And while ostensibly she narrates the novel her personality and experience are almost non existentThe novel could rightly have been named Mrs Lincoln's Story as Told by Her Dress

    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBRedundant and unnecessary book; most of the content consists of verbatim uoting of Mrs Keckley's memoirs with no new original research to expand her character Only the last 10% contains anything different from the memoirs and it feels rushed and incomplete since the last thirty years of her life are condensed in the retelling Very disappointing As I read this book I kept thinking how much stronger the novel would be if it was written from the perspective of one of her apprentices As it is with Keckley as the novel's focus vis a vis her own memoirs there are no insights into her character than what she herself gave I recommend going straight to the source and reading Keckley's memoir itself out of respect for a woman who was vilified in her time for what she wrote versus reading this book which in the end profits off of Keckley's writing in a way she herself never couldETA The following blog of Smithsonian Magazine gives insight into Keckley than this entire b

    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBI read this back in October for book club and while I appreciate learning about Elizabeth Keckley and her amazing accomplishments after buying her freedom from slavery it wasn't enough save the book The writing style and the insertion of very long passages of the Civil War battles that read like a history textbook made it a slogThe character of Ms Keckley was written as saintly with no nuances to her character I would have liked to have read about the prejudices she endured yet based on this book there were none It was a lot of telling very little showingI think my

    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBI found it interesting to read the reviews of this book on Goodreads many say this book was too dry and too unlike Jennifer Chiaverini's other books This is exactly why I liked it The book was about history than dress making And I love reading history books the true to history the better The first half was almost like watching the movie Lincoln This is how I visualized Mrs Lincoln as Sally Fields played her in the movie I've not read other biographies of Mrs Lincoln and I don't really care to read She sounds like a very unpleasant and unstable woman I figured the book would end with the assassination of President Lincoln but his death happened about halfway through the book I didn't know a thing about Mrs Lincoln's life after President Lincoln died It was a rather tragic life and sad to read But the book is a good read and interesting commentary on race perceptions during this era as well as a fictionalized biography of

    Kindle Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDF/EPUB ✓ Mrs Lincoln's ☆ gigonog.me lincoln's free, dressmaker free, Mrs Lincoln's mobile, Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker PDFEPUBI've read nearly all of Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek books so I was really looking forward to reading this new one about Elizabeth Keckley who was Mary Todd Lincoln's modiste or in other words her dressmaker This book did not disappoint Jennifer has a real talent of bringing history alive Elizabeth was born into slavery but through sheer hard work and determination she was able to buy not only her own freedom but also the freedom of her son I was very impressed by her and by her amazing loyalty to Mary Todd Lincoln who I thought did not deserve it at times nay much of the time Elizabeth stayed by her side through thick and thin especially when Mrs Lincoln nearly went mad with grief with the loss of her young son Willie The scene where Abraham Lincoln finally points out to her the insane asylum and
