In this interview, HistoryNet reporter Rebecca Miller interviews historical author Dorothy Love. Love is an award-winning writer known for her ability to bring historical color and refinement to historical fiction. Her latest novel, Mrs. Lee and Mrs. Gray, illuminates the remarkable friendship between Mrs. Robert E Lee and Selina Norris Gray, a servant born into slavery at Arlington. The discovery of an 1872 letter from Mrs. Gray to Mrs. Lee became the catalyst for this compelling story of loyalty and courage that defied personal tragedies and the tumult of the Civil War.
