After reading the first few pages, I became totally absorbed in Elizabeth Keckley's story of her life as a slave, and as a free woman. She did a superb job of writing an up close and personal look at slavery, the Civil War, and the daily lives of all the people both before and after those times in history. But, most of all, she manages to bring a clear and passionate view of her close personal and business relationship that she shared with President and Mrs. Lincoln. I'll read it again.
