Together Again

by Cheryl Rogers

Together Again

A book about our late president born Feb. 12, 1809 … and a teen who bears his name.

Seventeen-old-old Abe was like a fly on the wall as former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was talking to God. No one seemed to see or hear him, but he sure heard them. Lincoln was emphatic. He didn’t want to take all the credit for ending slavery and saving the union. ” ‘It’s not like I singlehandedly put the nation back together again. I wasn’t even there anymore! I died!’ ” he exclaims.

The soon-to-be college history major, who saw the dialogue in a dream, believes he’s being called by God to write Lincoln’s story in an ebook for his generation.

As the story unfolds, Lincoln learns he has more in common with Lincoln than their first names. They both, at one point, had a girlfriend named Ann. Lincoln lost his girl to typhoid; the modern Abe ditched his…

In this story the modern Abe learns to cherish love whenever you find it, and no one should be a wedge between man and God.

The short ebook is aimed at Christian young adult romance and historical fiction lovers, especially those with an affection for Honest Abe.
