KIRKUS REVIEW

When Mr. Dorn, a publisher and ardent Lincoln supporter, enlists the aid of little Elizabeth in helping him to avert a disaster, she responds with enthusiasm mixed with fear. Studious by nature, Elizabeth detests handiwork, preferring books to the company of strangers or to conventional girl's interests. But when a crisis arises, Elizabeth plays a vital part in quelling an attempt of Lincoln's enemies to create a mass disaster, a role which demands that she function efficiently as a young lady and that she overcome her fear of strangers. A feminine adventure which dramatizes a crucial moment in Lincoln's life.
