Don't know if someone has mentioned the new "Booth's Sister" by Jane Singer? There's been several excellent reviews on this novel that centers around John Wilkes Booth's sister and how his actions effected her life.

I haven't read it yet, but it's on it's way to me and I'm really looking forward to it.
