Summary
This is the self-told story of the woman who married the great Lincoln scholar, James G. Randall, and through her interest in his work became a Lincoln author herself.Like all Mrs. Randall's books, this one is absolutely true to its sources. Besides her own diaries and those of her husband, innumerable letters between them had luckily been preserved. Interwoven are reminiscences and statements of discerning friends - Allan Nevins, Carl Sandburg, David Donald, Frank Freidel, Richard Current among them. The result is the reliving in this book of the full and productive lives of partners who found the pursuit of scholarship and who managed to achieve the rewards of both. If the book also portrays a way of life that is past, it is our privilege here to see it as it was and our misfortune, perhaps, if it no longer exists
