Publisher's Summary

In Lincoln's Bodyguard, an alternative version of American history, President Lincoln is saved from assassination. Though he prophesied his own death - the only way he believed the South would truly surrender - Lincoln never accounted for the heroics of his bodyguard, Joseph Foster. A biracial mix of white and Miami Indian, Joseph makes an enemy of the South by killing John Wilkes Booth and preventing the death of the president. His wife is murdered and his daughter kidnapped, sending Joseph on a revenge-fueled rampage to recover his daughter. When his search fails, he disappears as the nation falls into a simmering insurgency instead of an end to the War. Years later, Joseph is still running from his past when he receives a letter from Lincoln pleading for help. The President has a secret mission. Pursued from the outset, Joseph turns to the only person who might help, the woman he abandoned years earlier. If he can win Molly over, he might just fulfill the President's urgent request, find his daughter, and maybe even hasten the end of the War.

If you like history, you will like this book!

I saw this book retweeted onto my timeline on social media. It was of the second book, so I decided to read the first one. I'm glad that it is on Audible so I got it. I was hooked from the prologue! That was how I continued on with listening to the story. Although I dislike the narrator on some areas he read. That didn't stop me from listening to the story. Within a couple of hours I've had this book on play. My mind just roams with the different words in the book. I don't want to say its a smooth read because it is beyond just that! One sentence described the nationality of the main character. It said something like, "I'm not colored, nor am I white, but invisible." I don't know if that is the exact wording for I forgot. But that is the type of sentence that caught me off guard. This book takes you back in time from the point of view of Abraham Lincoln's bodyguard. If you like history, you will like this book!
