"Searching for Lincoln's Ghost by Barbara J. Dzikowski is a riveting story that most readers will be able to relate to on some level. Dzikowski does a fabulous job with the combination of a history lesson and digging into issues relevant to our times." - “Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards
"In her first novel, Dzikowski has
created a world complete enough to transport the reader back in time and a spunky protagonist whose emotional journey breaks the heart. Dzikowski’s poignant, engrossing historical novel vividly parallels the last brutal days of segregation with the experiences of a small town girl coming of age in a racist society." -Kirkus Review
About The Author:
Barbara J. Dzikowski earned an undergraduate degree in philosophy and a graduate degree in counseling from Indiana University. These areas of study fuel her desire to create fiction that closely examines the human heart and its complex search for love and meaning. Fascinated by the passion, idealism, and lost hope of the 1960s, she is putting the finishing touches on her second novel about two families struggling with the changes and uncertainties of that decade, with a particular focus on the cataclysmic year of 1968.
