Publisher's Summary

"I wish I had a little girl like you, Julie," Mary Todd Lincoln often told Julie Taft, and for the first year of the Lincoln presidency, 16-year-old Julie had the run of the White House, befriending the First Lady, playing with the Lincoln boys, and sharing priceless moments with Lincoln himself, which she noted down in her diary. An intimate portrait of the Lincoln family, as only a child could see them, through the first, fateful, tragic year of the Civil War.

Audible Editor Reviews

As a member of Abraham Lincoln's inner circle during the early years of his presidency, young Julia Taft had unique access to the 16th president's household. She recorded her impressions for posterity in her memoirs, observations now brought to life in author Cecelia Holland's short tale. Performer Lisa Baney does an excellent Southern drawl, and her impression of a busy, gruff Lincoln (who nevertheless loved his two sons more than anything in the world) is memorable. Lincoln's Little Girl offers a glimpse into an intimate side of Lincoln that we rarely get to see, and is sure to be a treat for Lincoln's many admirers.
