In this touching novel based on real events, Truman "Scrump" Armstrong recalls an idyllic boyhood in 1858 and his family's courage in helping slaves escape to freedom along the Undergrond Railroad. Then Scrump's older brother, Duff, is accused of murder, and suddenly everything is on the line. Their rescuer is none other than attorney Abraham Lincoln, who defends Duff in what would become one of his most celebrated cases. More than a courtroom drama, The Lincoln Moon is ultimately a story of family, friendship, faith, and acts of conscience in troubling times.
"Finding a moment in a great man's younger life that captures his greatness and brilliance long before he becomes "a great man," and then turning that moment into a compelling and moving story, is exactly what Michael Price Nelson has done in his debut novel, The Lincoln Moon."
