Summary
In 1844, Missouri belle Julia Dent met dazzling horseman Lieutenant Ulysses S. Grant. Four years later when their parents permitted them to wed, the groom's abolitionist family refused to attend. Since childhood, Julia owned as a slave another Julia. Known as Jule, she guarded her mistress's closely held twin secrets: Julia had perilously poor vision but was gifted with prophetic sight. So it was that Jule became Julia's eyes to the world. And what a world it was
Summary
Julia Grant, beloved as Ullyses S. Grant’s wife and the First Lady, grappled with a profound and complex relationship with Jule, the slave who was her namesake. While Julia spoke out for women -- Union and Confederate -- she continued to hold Jule as a slave behind Union lines. Upon the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, Jule claimed her freedom and rose to prominence as a businesswoman in her own right
