The Soul of Ann Rutledge
by Bernie Babcock in 1918. She was widowed at the age of 29, with five children. She became determined to be a writer so she could stay at home and raise a family. This book became an international success going through fourteen printings and translated into several foreign languages.

This is a love story. About 322 pages. Melodramatic and historically inaccurate. In spite of this, it's a touching story. I'm not one for reading romance novels, but if you are, you may find this one worth your time. There are times when the writing is sickeningly sweet. It is offset by the times you share the feeling and emotions of Abraham and Ann. There is also a strong religious and moral theme through the book. The writing style is definitely dated. In spite of these shortcomings, I am glad I read it. The book has probably played a part in adding to the myth and legend of Abraham Lincoln.

I read the on line version, but you can find a copy to purchase on amazon.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
