  "The real story of Mark Twain" by BonzArt (see profile) 01/21/16

Lynn Cullen does a tremendous amount of research to get as close to her historical figures true lives as possible, and still tells a story with wit, insight and surprises! Loved this book!

 
  "Twain's End Lynn Cullen" by ccroft78248 (see profile) 04/27/16

This is a great book! I enjoyed it and was excited to read it each evening when I got home from work. The story weaves together fact with the fiction of what could have happened. It holds interest and encourages the reader to learn more about Miss Lyon and Sam Clemens' relationship.

 
  "Beloved Mark Twain was an imposter!" by CynKing57 (see profile) 07/15/16

After almost 5 years of faithful service to America's most beloved author, Isabel Lyons was dismissed and slandered by Mark Twain as a fraud, cheat and woman of lose morals and she did not fight back. The story that Lynn Cullen has crafted was insightful into the persona that Samuel Clemons created and the magnitude of the personality of Mark Twain. The author presents information based on Isabel's own diary about her life while serving the Clemons family and her own weakness in falling in love with him. There was much to discuss about all the relationships - Clemons and his daughters, Clemons and his wife, his daughters to Isabel and also the strange relationship Clemons had with his "Angels" of which Helen Keller was the most well known.

 
  "Twains End" by gaylereads (see profile) 07/17/16

Learned some things about people. Left with some questions about their lives but still found some insight into the time period.
