Review of 'Lincolns Dreams'

Lincolns Dreams by Connie Willis

The first novel by Willis, this tells the story of Jeff Johnson, a young historical researcher for a civil war novelist who comes across Annie who seems to be having the dreams of Robert E. Lee (who Jeff, of course, knows a lot about). The story takes a turn when Jeff takes Annie away from her therapist to explore the dreams in more detail, but is this the best for Annie? An interesting story of the super-natural with memorable characters and a lot of detail about the civil war. A good read though not comparable to Willis' later works.

Rating: “Average, but who wants to be average?”
