520    "The New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. Lincoln's 
       Dressmaker and Mrs. Lincoln's Rival imagines the inner 
       life of Julia Grant, beloved as a Civil War general's wife
       and the First Lady, yet who grappled with a profound and 
       complex relationship with the slave who was her namesake-
       until she forged a proud identity of her own.  In 1844, 
       Missouri belle Julia Dent met dazzling horseman Lieutenant
       Ulysses S Grant. Four years passed before their parents 
       permitted them to wed, and the groom's abolitionist family
       refused to attend the ceremony.  Since childhood, Julia 
       owned as a slave another Julia, known as Jule. Jule 
       guarded her mistress's closely held twin secrets: She 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, marked by gathering 
       clouds of war. The Grants vowed never to be separated, but
       as Ulysses rose through the ranks-becoming general in 
       chief of the Union Army-so did the stakes of their pact. 
       During the war, Julia would travel, often in the company 
       of Jule and the four Grant children, facing unreliable 
       transportation and certain danger to be at her husband's 
       side.  Yet Julia and Jule saw two different wars. 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, taking the honorary title Madame. The two 
       women's paths continued to cross throughout the Grants' 
       White House years in Washington, DC, and later in New York
       City, the site of Grant's Tomb.  Mrs. Grant and Madame 
       Jule is the first novel to chronicle this singular 
       relationship, bound by sight and shadow"--|cProvided by
