My Name Is Nancy

"He was not a child conceived in sin but by Fate" she said.

     Nancy Hanks Lincoln's strength and commitment to this child would rival no other. Love, loss, passion, magic and mysticism, the decisions that shaped her life and the life of her son changed a nation forever.

     A blend of Indian lore and traditional religion, love and betrayal, passion and abuse, ultimately leading to acceptance and forgiveness. History has often wondered why Abraham Lincoln believed he could raise his station in life from poverty stricken rail splitter to President of the United States. The events surrounding his mother's life answers that question and more.
