Yesterday on Books on TV there was a Woman talking about her biography of The 
Most Famous Man in America: The Biography of Henry Ward Beecher.  He was the 
older brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe and a minister in a family of minister 
but this one began, or so it seems, the pattern of the modern philandering 
minister.  The book sounds fascinating as does the story of how the author came 
to write the book.  It started out as a short paper for school. Somewhere in my 
room, near this bed, is a small tablet with the last name of the author whose 
first name  is Debby. If I find it I'll pass it along but it should be an easy 
book to find.  I would love to work on it by my list of "to do" books is larger 
than my abilities as it is so I dare not find it but if you are in the mood for 
a fascinating and true biography this one sounds like a doozy.
