About the Book:
An inventive historical thriller that reimagines the tumultuous presidential election of
1860, capturing the people desperately trying to hold the nation together – and those
trying to crack it apart.
Abby Kelley Foster arrived in Springfield, Illinois with the fate of the nation on her mind. Her
fame as an abolitionist speaker had spread west and she knew that her first speech in the city
would make headlines. One of the residents reading those headlines would be none other than
the likely next President of the United States.
Abraham Lincoln, lawyer and presidential candidate, knew his chances of winning were good.
All he had to do was stay above the fray of the slavery debate and appear the voice of
compromise until the people cast their votes. The last thing he needed was a fiery abolitionist
appearing in town. When her speech sparks violence, leading to her arrest and a high-profile
trial, he suspects that his political rivals have conspired against him.
President James Buchanan is one such rival. As his term ends and his political power crumbles,
he gathers his advisors at the White House to make one last move that might derail Lincoln’s
campaign, steal the election, and throw America into chaos.
A fascinating historical novel and fast-paced political thriller of a nation on the cusp of civil
war, The Day Lincoln Lost offers an unexpected window into one of the most consequential
elections in our country’s history.
