        Mystic Chords is the inspired autobiography of Abraham Lincoln, with

all the events, people, and dates being historically accurate, as well as the relationships he had. Groundbreaking and revelatory, it accurately chronicles, with a very personal touch, the many hardships and losses endured by the boy, the young man, and the eventual leader of a deeply divided, fragile republic. 

       Related in his own voice, Lincoln as narrator, invites the reader to relive each moment of levity, love, and loss, right beside him. Not one to sugarcoat the facts, as he puts it, you are treated to both his dominant “better angel”,

as well as his bouts with melancholy and fits of anger.

       Despite all the anguish and the unimaginable agony of being forced into leading the worst bloodshed ever seen in American history, Lincoln’s great gift of storytelling and humor shine through it all. More than anything else, however, it is his huge heart and renowned honesty that makes

this unforgettable journey such a unique treasure.
