Take a close look at a woman history has often maligned and misunderstood – the high-spirited, clever and charming Mary Todd Lincoln. Laurie presents an intimate portrayal of a woman whose eccentricities, intelligence and political skills propelled her out of the traditional womanly sphere and into the unrelenting criticism of the Victorian era. Gain a better understanding why Abraham Lincoln fell in love with her…and never fell out of love. Sponsored by Healthlink Advocates, Inc.
