Left Bank Books
The bestselling author of Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker imagines the inner life of Julia Grant, a St. Louis-born belle, Civil War general's wife and First Lady who grappled with a profound and complex relationship with the slave who was her namesake. While Julia spoke out for women, she continued to hold Jule as a slave. Upon the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, Jule claimed her freedom and rose to prominence as a businesswoman in her own right, and the two women's paths continued to cross.
