by Anna Meyer

 

 

Assassin, by Anna Meyer, is a wonderful piece of historical fiction about the events leading to the assassination of President Lincoln. What makes this novel so enthralling, is the perspective from which it is told - that of John Wilkes Booth, and the fictional character of young Arabella Getchel.

 The book has 207 pages. Each chapter the story switches to the viewpoint of a different character.

The story takes place in Washington City (now Washington, D.C.)  during the Civil War (1859).

The plot begins when the young  Arabella, is taken to Washington City from Richmond, Virginia to live with her grandmother after the death of her mother.  Her father is not comfortable with his parental duties and after leaving Arabella with a grandmother she doesn't know,  enlists in the Confederate Army.  She slowly becomes connected to the Union through life in  Washington City.

Arabella meets the idol of the day, a die-hard Confederate named John Wilkes Booth.  Booth is a man of considerable charm, and beguiles "Bella"  with his flattery and promises of acting advice.  He wins her over with his attention and and learns of her love for the father who abandoned her.  Through this information, he persuades her to unwittingly  become involved in his scheme of malevalent intentions.
