"The most gossiped-about woman in Washington was Abraham Lincoln's wife.
"Tongues began wagging the moment she stepped into the White House - and they never stopped. As a Southerner, she was accused by the North of being a spy. Southern sympathizers called her 'traitor.'
"But it was as a woman that she was most talked-about. She was called a nag, a shrew - John Hay called her a 'hell-cat.' Some whispered she had driven Mr. Lincoln from the connubial bed.
"Here is a fresh telling of the story of 'the most maligned woman in American history.' Here is a memorable portrait of the proud, paradoxical woman who was one of our most fascinating First Ladies. "
