Based on true events, Mrs. Lee and Mrs. Gray tells the story of the friendship of Mary Custis Lee and her serving Selina Norris Gray. When the Civil War erupts and Mary is forced to leave her beloved Arlington behind, she entrusts the care of her estate to Selina. This friendship lasts a lifetime until Mary passes away.
I absolutely loved this book. I found it interesting to read because it was a story you don’t really read about. It seems to me it was unheard of for a slave and a mistress to have such a friendship as Mary and Selina had back then. I highly recommend this book especially if you like historical fiction.
