The description of this book says it all. Kate Chase proved herself to be a strong woman, well respected by the men in the political circles and loathed by Mary Todd Lincoln, the jealous, manipulative and frivilious spender wife of President Abraham Lincoln. "Boy" Governor William Sprague, Kate's abusive husband did not appreciate his strong willed wife who demanded he give up tobacco and whiskey, until she became pregnant with her first child and his second by a women who gave birth to his son out of wedlock. I could imagine Kate's shock when she learned of this from her mother-in-law. The book's content did include real historical facts. Mrs. Lincoln's Rival is a good read for history buffs.
