#A HOUSE DIVIDED by Jonathan F. Putnam


I saw this book and felt that it would be nice to learn more about Lincoln's early life. This book has been researched and while it is Historical fiction I learn a good amount about life in the Midwest. The author is new to me and I plan on reading the early books in the series.

The 4th episode of the Lincoln and Speed mysteries finds in 1839 that Springfield is in a turmoil over the fact that the state bank has no hard currency and the work on the canal has stopped and has hit the workers hard sending many into poverty. 
Henry Trailer accuses his brothers William and Archibald of killing Fynn Fisher. Archibald saved Joshua Speed's life during the ice storm and convinces Lincoln to get involved in the case. The outcome of the case is impressive. Speed and Lincoln are both attractive to a new woman, Mary Todd in town. There a unique bank robbery and a chase of the felons that will capture will the mind. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
