Founded upon several historical theories about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War, the novel takes the reader through Abraham Lincolns life and death while the characters work to unravel several mysteries from that period.

The story follows two main characters: Sean Johnson, a reporter in Seattle, who is researching a theory that Abraham Enloe fathered Abraham Lincoln- Kim Poole, a woman in Kansas City, who uncovers a family secret that her ancestor changed his last name over fear of something related to Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. A professor of history at University of Tennessee who specializes in Lincoln soon joins the mix, as does his sister, Mary Fester, an Enloe family historian living in Phoenix.

There are sinister forces at work against them, a fact the reader understands better than the characters. The storys primary settings are Denver and a region of the south covering portions of Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. The novel also visits the Lincoln Birthplace National Park in Kentucky and the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum complex in Springfield, Illinois. The story culminates in a search to find a secret left over from General Shermans occupation of Atlanta and his march across Georgia to the sea.The core mystery in The Lincoln Secret is whether Abraham Lincolns father was really Thomas Lincoln.

She was sent back to Kentucky in disgrace where shesecretly had the child after marrying Thomas Lincoln. As the nation prepares to celebrate Abraham Lincolns 200th birthday, The Lincoln Secret probes into the topic of who Abraham Lincolns father really was and raises doubts about when he was really born.
