Obviously, the author examines his sudden and unexpected marriage to Mary Todd, possibly Lincoln's greatest tragedy. She also looks at how Lincoln was affected by his mother's death when he was only nine years and the discovery that his mother's ancestry and reputation were scandalous and that he may have been illegitimate. Other women also impacted Lincoln by their deaths--the unexpected death of his beloved sister, Sarah, and the untimely death of Ann Rutledge, probably the only woman with whom Lincoln shared a deep, wonderful love. The author also examines the positive impacts of women on Lincoln and he on them, especially his stepmother--the first person to treat him with respect."
