Summary
A century after Varina Davis's death in 1906. Joan E. Cashin has written a masterly work, a definitive biography of this truly modern, but deeply conflicted woman. Pro-slavery but also pro-Union, Varina Davis was inhibited by her role as Confederate First Lady and unable to reveal her true convictions
