Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy tells the spellbinding true story of four women who risked everything—their homes, their families, and their very lives—during the Civil War. Karen Abbott's pulse-quickening narrative reads like the finest fiction, seamlessly weaving the adventures of these four heroines across the tumultuous landscape of a broken America, and evoking a secret world that will surprise even the most avid fan of the Civil War. With a cast of real-life characters including Walt Whitman, Nathaniel Hawthorne, General Stonewall Jackson, detective Allan Pinkerton, Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, and Emperor Napoleon III, Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy draws the reader into the war as these daring women lived it, constantly courting risk and raising the stakes, and not one of them ever quite what she seemed. 

A Celebrating America program presented by Carroll County Public Library, in partnership with McDaniel College, the Historical Society of Carroll County, and the New Windsor Heritage Committee.
