Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying, “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
Keller provides a look into the life of Nancy Hanks Lincoln through two journals of the woman who would give birth to and shape the life and beliefs of Abraham Lincoln.
The first journal is from Nancy Hanks from age 14 until she married Tom Lincoln.
The second journal focuses on Nancy Hanks Lincoln until her death at age 34.
The book covers her life as an indentured servant, her loves, hopes and dreams.
It is the story of one woman’s strength and never wavering belief in her child and the importance of love and happiness.
The public is welcome to hear Keller’s interesting talk.
