The infamous John Wilkes Booth, mercurial son of an acclaimed British stage actor and a Covent Garden flower girl, has been the subject of more than a century of scholarship, speculation, and even obsession. Booth is often portrayed as a shadowy figure, a violent loner whose single murderous act made him the most hated man in America. Lost to history until now is the story of the four women whom he loved and who loved him in return. Presiding over the chaotic Booth household and overflowing with a mother's love, the steadfast and compassionate Mary Ann Booth is blind to her son's growing traitorous rage. Asia Booth has always stood by her younger brother, protecting him and helping him become a successful actor like their father--but there are some secrets even the most loyal confidante isn't told. Daughter of a unionist New Hampshire senator, the smart, fiercely independent Lucy Hale believes the love she and John share is a rare and precious blessing in a country torn apart by war. For the strong-willed, widowed Mary Surratt, Booth represents the last hope of the Confederacy, and she welcomes him and his conspirators into her home--at great peril to her family. As their stories intertwine, overlap, and speed toward the inevitable conclusion, all four women attempt to answer the most important question of their lives--who, exactly, is John Wilkes Booth?
