Publisher's Summary

For Jeff Johnston, a young historical researcher for a Civil War novelist, reality is redefined on a bitter cold night near the close of a lingering winter. He meets Annie, an intense and lovely young woman suffering from vivid nightmares. Haunted by the dreamer and her unrelenting dreams, Jeff leads Annie on an emotional odyssey through the heartland of the Civil War in search of a cure.
On long-silenced battlefields their relationship blossoms - two obsessed lovers linked by unbreakable chains of history, torn by a duty that could destroy them both. Suspenseful, moving, and highly compelling, Lincoln’s Dreams is a novel of rare imaginative power.


What the Critics Say

"A novel of classical proportions and virtues...humane and moving." (The Washington Post Book World)
"A love story on more than one level, and Ms. Willis does justice to them all. It was only toward the end of the book that I realized how much tension had been generated, how engrossed I was in the characters, how much I cared about their fates." (The New York Times Book Review)

Last chapter not missing

I hesitated about buying the audiobook since the only comment complained about the end missing, but took a chance on it being fixed. Luckily it was, and the end is not missing anymore.

The book convinced me once again that Connie Willis is a fabulous writer, so I will continue to listen my way through her bibliography :)
