Giveaway: The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln by Stephen Carter


From the best-selling author of The Emperor of Ocean Parkand New England White, a daring reimagining of one of the most tumultuous moments in our nation’s past.

What if Abraham Lincoln had survived Booth’s bullet?

In The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln, Stephen L. Carter travels back to Washington, D. C. (then known as Washington City) in April 1865 and imagines what might have happened had Lincoln survived the assassination attempt.

“This novel has all the juicy stew of post–Civil War Washington, with the complexities of race, class, and sex mixed in. Carter draws on historical documents and a vivid imagination to render a fascinating mix of murder mystery, political thriller, and courtroom drama . . . Imaginatively conceived.”

—Vanessa Bush, Booklist (starred)
