Description of the audiobook Behind the Scenes:

Born in Virginia in 1818, Elizabeth Keckley raised a slave until she could earn her and her son's freedom by working as a seamstress. As she perfected her craft, her style attracted the attention of Washington, D.C.'s elite. It wasn't until the day of Abraham Lincoln's inauguration that they met Mary Todd Lincoln, whom Elizabeth accepted as her confidant and seamstress.

Behind the Scenes not only gives you insight into Elizabeth Keckley's life in bondage and freedom but also into the lives of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. At the time of publication, the president's and his family's lives were private and hidden from the public—a book that gave everyone an idea of ​​what was going on in the White House.
