From the acclaimed and New York Times bestselling author of Loving Frank, an unprecedented view of Lincoln's Springfield. Now in paperback!

For as long as she can remember, Ana has been an outsider. Her refugee family settled in 1860s Springfield, Illinois, in the enclave of Little Madeira, where Portuguese rolls off the tongue and porches are full of neighbors and children. A bustling state capital thick with runaway slaves and the slave catchers that follow them, Springfield is also home to a rising politician named Abraham Lincoln.

It is in the Lincoln home that Ana finds employment as Saturday girl and household help, working directly for Mary Lincoln in a front-row seat to historic societal changes that will reshape not only Springfield, but an entire country.
