What was it like to be the sister of the boy who would grow up to become president of the United States? Sally Lincoln's voice has never before been heard. Now she tells her own story of an unsettling time for the Lincoln family, which changed and influenced both children forever. Forced to leave their home in Kentucky, the family begins anew in Indiana territory, only later to be devastated by the death of Nancy Hanks, Sally and Abe's adored mother. When their demanding father journeys back to Kentucky to find a new wife, leaving eleven-year-old Sally in charge of nine-year-old Abe, the children have to face the hardships of the frontier alone. In a novel full of the power of adventure and the poignancy of family love -- and in time for the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth -- Mazer gives voice to a girl who helped shape the life of one of this country's greatest presidents.
