review 1: I love Stephen L. Carter's writing. Love it. He is obviously a meticulous researcher and plot strategist. I loved the "what if" of this book. It's a fascinating idea and he makes it seem nearly plausible. I enjoyed his picking and choosing of the real words of historical figures, the bits of off-beat history he included, his inclusion of Abigail Canner as a pivotal character in a time and place when a female law clerk was unheard of.
review 2: This is a great blend of history, supposition, 19th century race relations, the way law works, description of DC in the mid 1800s, and a hint of romance. Really interesting the way it all comes together in the end. I'm sort of fascinated by Dan Sickles now--he's a well-written, interesting part of this book. Also, the
... moresouthern pastor who Abigail and Jonathan to go visit is disgustingly awful, but unbelievably well written. Such a good book! less
